As parents, how can we help with our 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 following things with your child it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner.
As we are starting a new phase in our lives with the EYFS framework, we would like to share this great resource of what to expect and when, which we believe would be a great guidance to the parents in regards to child's learning and development stages. Parents should check this guideline out, however please keep in mind that every child is unique and they have their own pace about growth and paths to learn new things.
