Birth – 4 Years of age

Learning at home resources and ideas for children aged birth to four years

Children learn a lot in the first few years of life. Learning happens when babies and children feel safe and secure. Talking, playing and reading to your child are great things to do.

No-one knows your child better than you, so choose and/or adapt ideas here to best suit you and your child. Remember it’s the talking and time spent together that matter the most.
