HOW CAN I HELP WITH MY CHILD'S LEARNING?

All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school.

Even when your child is very young and is not yet able to talk, talking to them helps them to learn and understand new words and ideas.

If you make the time every day to do some of the above things with your child it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner.
