How you can help your child to learn


As parents you are the most important educator as you are the expert on your child. What you do at home is so vital to your child's learning and you are doing it all the time without even knowing it when you talk and play together.

Below are some suggestions of some of the things that you can do with your child to help them learn and grow. 



  • Role play is an activity that you and your child can do together. For example, you can, act out a story you have read together, have a tea party with dolls and teddy bears.
  • Spend 5 minutes every day looking and reading books
  • Sing songs and rhymes
  • Visit parks and local areas, did you know your child needs to climb and swing to develop the skills for writing? 
  • Spend time without the TV on to eliminate background noise to help develop good speech and encourage listening skills
  • Allow your child time to explore and experiment with their toys commenting on what they are doing.
  • Talk through problems such as turn taking to help develop problem solving skills and independence.
