Helping with your child’s education at home

Of course much of a child’s education is done in schools, but you may be surprised as to how much impact education taught at home can have on a child’s learning.

Children are learning from the day they are born (and even before in the womb) but as they get nearer school age, they start to develop certain skills and tis is often when they pick up a basic knowledge of reading and writing.

Reading and writing skills can be helped by reading books with your child at home. Even from an early age, before they can understand many of the words, hearing books be read to them and asking them questions about what is going on in the picture can help them develop an imagination and an understanding of the language.

Simply getting your child to count out the cutlery when laying the table or recognising the first letter of their name can all help them when they come to nursery of school.
