Activities with Your Child

Research shows that parents and caregivers have an important role in supporting early child development, this can be done through play! 
 
Play-based learning is:
  • any activity or game that builds your child’s development and academic skills 
  • a way to teach your child new things 
  • simple and fun 
There are activities you can do with your child to help them to learn, how to problem-solve, get along with others, to build their language skills, and to have fun.
