How to support your child's learning

Here are some ways you can help support your child's learning:


*Read to them as often as you can. This can never begin too early and there is no tablet app that can replace the time spent together doing this.


*Singing nursery rhymes.


*Talk!! About anything and everything! What you can see around you on walks, things you are doing together, colours, shapes, quantities, the names of things, logos, signs, numbers...the list is endless.


*Encourage physical activity. Running, climbing, riding a bike or balancing.


*Practice counting together.


*Be creative.


*Provide as many experiences as you can. For example, camping in the garden, a walk in the dark with a torch, baking, junk modelling, painting. Again the list is endless, anything you can talk about together.
