“Children are the readers on the laps of their parents.”
Learning and development actually begin at home itself. Learning done at home will have a long lasting effect on the child during their progress to schools.
Parents can do the following activities with their children:
“Don’t ask your child to live in your world, visit their world instead.”
Sing and tell nursery rhymes
Tell them about numbers, colors, letters and words when we go out
Allow them an opportunity to cut out and stick pictures from magazines
When we go out to supermarkets, tell them about different packaging shapes
Show them how to plant seeds and water it
Cook or bake together
Explore the park and give them an opportunity to mingle with other children
Try to read and share stories from good books
If the parents work together with caretakers or professionals, one will get a better result in their child's development.
“Enabling environments mobilise the ENERGY, ATTENTION, CURIOSITY and FOCUS of children.”
