Learning at home for nursery aged children should take place through everyday activities including play and general family life, such as food preparation, gardening, setting the table, sorting washing and cooking. It can also happen through curriculum related activities, home learning, reading and sharing books. Activities at home can be specifically designed to help you engage in your child’s learning and build upon playful learning experiences from nursery.
Please have a read at the guide we have produced:
We would like to share links for free, age appropriate interactive games, exercise clips and ideas to keep wee ones busy while at home.
