The first years of your child’s education are so important. It is a time when children discover the wonder and excitement of learning, exploring and imagining.

It is vital that you are involved in your children’s learning during these important years as continuing their learning at home helps build confidence at school.

There are many fun and easy ways to support children’s learning. To assist you, a series of parent videos, booklets and factsheets are available to help you keep the learning going at home.

Designed for busy families, these resources include fun activities you can include in your daily routines both in and outside your home.
