Providing learning support at home can help children better cope with the changing national curriculum that the UK government is planning to introduce from 2014.
Whether the changes go through quickly or not, we can expect the schooling system to be in a certain state of flux for several years as teachers adapt to the new material.
That’s why early childhood learning can be beneficial. By introducing basic ideas from the new curriculum at home and creating a home environment where learning is encouraged, children can have a head start on the school curriculum. And starting to learn in a positive way at home can prove vital for future progress within the school system.
One of the biggest issues when raising children is their education. Many children have learning disabilities, are distracted by things outside of school, or just don’t seem to be interested in the current curriculum. As a parent, it falls on you to encourage the love of learning in your kids. One of the best ways to do this is to present supplemental and alternative educational opportunities to your children. Weeknights and weekends can be spent taking in new information too, if you know how to package it right. By taking your kids outside, incorporating technology, and making reading fun – you can foster a love of learning from a young age.
