How To Support Your Child's Learning At Home
Create a Learning Den
Dedicate a corner of your home to learning so your child has an inspiring space to explore. This doesn’t require an entire room makeover; a small corner with age-appropriate books, soft cushions, and educational toys will do.
Learning Through Everyday Activities
Every moment is a chance for exploration! Just as our little cubs learn through play at our daycare, you can infuse learning into everyday activities at home. Counting the stairs while climbing, identifying colors during mealtime, and exploring textures during bath time are all great ways to boost your child's cognitive development.
Take your child on outdoor adventures where they can experience the magic of nature firsthand. Collect leaves, observe insects, and explore the world around them. These trips stimulate curiosity, critical thinking, and a deep connection to the world.
Music enhances language skills, coordination, and emotional expression. This means that singing songs, dancing, and exploring rhythms together is a wonderful way to not only bond with your child but also support their learning journey. Creating a playlist of classic nursery rhymes and age-appropriate songs can help you turn even the simplest activities into joyful learning experiences.
