How can I become more involved in my child’s development?

Children learn a huge amount while in quality childcare; however you, their parents and carers are the first and most important educators in your child’s life. Children spend most of their time  at home where learning happens naturally in their daily lives. Every moment you spend with your child is a chance for them to learn from you. Together, you and practitioners can have a really positive influence on your child’s learning and development.

We believe family learning gives you the skills to continue learning in the home even when your child has finished their session at childcare. Family members doesn’t just have to mean you — it can include siblings, grandparents, friends or anyone else that cares for your child.
