Evidence suggests that parental involvement in early learning has a greater impact on our children’s well-being and achievement than any other factor. Children need a variety of positive learning experiences provided in a secure and loving environment if they are to achieve their full potential.

"Tell me and I forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I understand." — Chinese proverb


“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”
― Rachel Carson

Below you will find learning plans and ideas that have been put together to help parents support their children's learning and development form home. Its just some ideas to get children thinking and continue to develop the their ability to extended their own learning and knowledge. Every child is unique and at their own stage of development.
