We see our relationship with our families as a partnership as we work together to ensure your child’s early education experience sets them up for a lifelong love of learning. If parents want to extend their preschoolers learning at home, helping them to achieve their developmental milestones, some fun ways they can do this include:
- Giving your child more responsibilities around the home such as setting the table or caring for the family pet will promote self esteem and confidence.
- Take any opportunity you can to incorporate unintentional learning activities in the day such as playing I-Spy on a walk or writing a shopping list together which will teach literacy skills.
- Create your own book together by cutting out pictures from old magazines and gluing them to paper will your preschooler develop fine motor skills to help with emergent writing.
- Taking various objects into the bath to conduct your own sink and float experiments is a great way to introduce preschoolers to scientific concepts such as investigation and hypothesising.
