The importance of Early Years...

The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play. There are a number of ways you can help your child to learn and make progress:

  • Always be on time.
  • Good attendance.
  • Home reading and making sure your child brings their book bag to school every day. 
  • Point out numbers and letters in the environment. 
  • Count at every opportunity!
  • Talk to your child about the world around them. Encourage their curious streak and pose questions starting with ‘I wonder...’
  • Ask your child what he / she has been doing in school.
