Learning at Home for under 5's
Children soak up every little bit of stimulation you give them. All the little things make a big difference to the development of their speech and understanding of words.

Everyday moments can be used to boost your child’s learning, as they are interested in all sorts of things.

The Hungry Little Minds campaign also provides lots of simple tips and activities that you can slot into your routine and that children love. Such as:

  1. Play ‘I spy’ on the bus with them and you can see their imaginations light up
  2. Talk to your child about what has happened so far in the day – for example, "We went to the shops this morning, didn’t we? We bought some apples." And talk about what is going to happen next – "After lunch we’ll do the washing up"
  3. Look at picture books together. With each new page, give your child time to point out things to you and talk about what they can see

Search Hungry Little Minds for simple tips and activities, or to find out what’s available where you live and help set them up nicely for school.
