Supporting your child’s early learning

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!

Here are some links to activities and information to help you get start locally and online.
