• 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.
