Parents can, and do, play a very hands-on role in their child’s early learning – from making healthy snacks and lunches to organising playdates or adventures to the park or library.
When parents have a good understanding of their child’s developmental stage and needs, they can make more informed choices about how to support and extend their child’s learning. And have a lot of fun doing it along the way!
