Frequently Asked Questions
When can I start using the Oliiki app?
Becoming a parent starts from the moment you see that thin blue line! We know it's such an exciting journey and we know there's no guide book to help you. We want to help you be the very best parent you can be, which is why the Oliiki app starts from the day of conception! Each day simple activities guide you to ask questions, think, and prepare so that when your baby arrives, you're ready to start parenting confidently.
We also know that often, once the baby arrives, new parents feel lost and abandoned. That's why we created simple activities for you to do with your baby every day right up until they're two years old. Giving you a helping hand to become the best parent you can be and helping you set your baby up for success for life.
How long does each activity take?
Your baby will let you know how long they're enjoying the activity. You should be led by them. Some activities will last a few minutes, while they will enjoy others for longer. As they grow, so will their attention span! Time is short when you have a new baby. 10 minutes of really high quality play each day will really help your baby to develop to the full. The Oliiki app shows you how to use this time well.
How is Oliiki different from other activity apps?
Unlike other activity apps, we start from the moment your parenting journey begins. The Oliiki app is so much more than a list of activities. Not only are you given an age-appropriate activity to do each day from conception to two, but we also show you what your baby is learning from each activity. We explain the science and research behind the learning you are giving your baby so you are also learning more about your baby's development as you play.
Do the activities need lots of different resources?
No; we have specifically designed the app so that the majority of the activities use things from around your house. We wanted to make a positive impact on the environment and so seek to reuse simple every day objects that you probably already have. Which in turn, helps you make a great impact on the environment and helps ensure the play you do with your baby is environmentally sustainable.
Some of the activities look so simple - can they really be doing enough for my baby?
For your baby, simple's never simple. They need to learn everything. The Oliiki app shows you not only the activity but also the learning your baby is getting from the play that you're doing. The science in the app backs that up and teaches you about your baby's development. So you're learning as your baby learns. All of this builds your confidence so you know you're doing just what's needed to help your baby develop and reach their full potential.
Should I really be thinking about learning when my baby's so small?
The foundations you lay for your baby at this really early stage are the foundations they will have for life. What you do now, impacts everything! The experiences you give your baby now will help them in their learning, their play, their work later in life, their relationships, and even their health! Investing in your baby now sets them up for success for life!
What if my baby is special needs; can I still use the app?
Although the Oliiki app is not specifically designed as a special needs app, your baby will still love many of the activities. Simply enter an age-adjusted birth date when you download the app. The activities will be served to you based on the adjusted birth date and can be adapted for your baby's specific needs.
