Having Fun at Home

What can parents and carers do?

You are your child’s first teacher. You can help your child to learn and develop anywhere, anytime, for example through …

Being generous with praise and cuddles
Talking about pictures and reading stories together
Playing games and singing nursery rhymes
Talking about what you see in the park or on the street
Counting the stairs as you go up and down or the cutlery on the table

Have a look at our Learning together through play suggestions or the Playful ideas from Homerton staff for more ideas.
