Parents and educators are the most important adults in a child’s life. You can support your child's learning and development at home in the following ways:
■ Ask your child's teacher for suggestions for what you can do at home with your child.
■ Involve your child in everyday activities like cooking, shopping, working in the garden, and travelling on the bus. Talk to your child about what he/she is doing, sees, and how he/she feels.
■ Read to your child. Join your local library, and help your child to choose books to enjoy together.
■ Sing songs, tell stories and play games with your child. Have fun together.
■ Talk to your child. Encourage him/her to ask questions. Let your child know you don’t always have the answer. Find things out together.
■ Limit the amount of time your child spends watching television. Talk to him/her about what he/she watches.
