Supporting Learning at Home


You are your child’s first and most enduring educator! What parents do, makes a crucial difference to children’s learning and development.

Research tells us that regardless of the quality of early years settings, the most important predictor of children’s future outcomes is the quality of the home learning environment, which is why we believe that involving parents in their children’s learning is one of the most important factors in enabling children to do well. 

We share our learning summaries for the half-term ahead with parents. This includes our core books and nursery rhymes, as well as lots of suggestions for things you can do at home to support your child’s learning which links into what we are doing in Preschool. Our weekly newsletters also give parents suggested activities to try at home which link to our learning, as well as a weekly maths challenge!

One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to play, chat and read with your children at home, but beyond this, please follow the links below for more general home learning ideas and advice.
