How can I help with my child’s learning?
All the activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their development and have a long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. Examples of these include talking to your child, reading, singing nursery rhymes and cooking.
Parents often underestimate what they can do to support their child’s development. If you feel unsure of what to do at home to support your child’s learning, you can find out what is on offer at your local children’s centre. Many offer a range of activities which you and your child can join in and many of the activities provided are free. Staff at school can also give you advice about the kinds of books and other activities your child might enjoy doing at different ages.
Within the ‘What to expect, when...’ document also saved in the section, you can find fun ideas to support your child in all areas of learning. The 30-50 month ‘How can you help me with my learning?’ page will give you ideas for the winter term up until Christmas and the 40-60 month ‘How can you help me with my learning?’ page will give you ideas for the remaining two terms.
