Welcome to Teaching Your Child

'Teaching Your Child' provides tried and tested activities to develop your child's early learning.  We also offer tuition and online educational support.

From preparing your child for their first day at nursery to helping them stay safe online, this site offers a wealth of information so you can provide the best foundations for your child.

A range of activity ideas and resources are suggested along with information on behaviour management strategies, development of social and emotional intelligence as well as healthy lifestyle choices.

The Benefits of Supporting Your Child

One of the most valuable things one can provide for their child is a supportive, stimulating  and happy family environment. All suggested activities are designed to be beneficial and fun, whilst providing you with suggestions on how to ensure your child makes progress in all developmental areas.  We also have information for those parents who may be considering home schooling.

Teaching your child to read is an essential skill and through introducing stories and nursery rhymes at a young age you can help your child to acquire language and speech, so your child has a wider vocabulary and is prepared for literacy learning. For our step-to-step guide on learning to read, see Reading and Jolly Phonics.

Maths is a necessary life skill and there are many daily routines and activities which can be used to incorporate mathematical knowledge and understanding into your child's day. There are a range of suggested numeracy activities on this site from learning to tell the time to singing number songs. For more ideas see our pages on  Numeracy.

Learning to write is a complex skill. By introducing your child to letter sounds and practising letter formation together, you can develop their ability to write and spell simple words. For suggestions see Early Writing.

Children need time to socialise and make friends with their peers, if they are to develop socially and emotionally. By organising activities for your child they will have opportunities to develop respect and consideration towards others. For ideas see Social Skills and Good Manners.

Your child's behaviour is key to them being able to learn and progress both at school and at home. For advice on challenging behavior and how to use rewards and praise see Behaviour Management. We also have information on developing bedtime and sleep time routines.

Settling your child into school can be emotionally challenging for both child and parent, for information, tips and advice see our section on Starting School. We also have information on Forest School which is a beneficial outdoor learning experience popular in early education. 

The importance of your child leading a healthy lifestyle and having a balanced diet is also discussed with advice on Healthy Eating and healthy lunchbox choices.  Suggestions on how to help your child remain physically active by encouraging them to ride a bike and learn to swim can also be found. 

E-safety is an important consideration for the well-being of children. For information on how to help your child stay safe online see our guidelines on Internet Safety. We also have advice on how to discuss stranger safety

By setting aside quality, one-to-one time each day and choosing the right activities for your child you can help them make progress across all areas of development. With all the suggested activities, it is advised that you adapt them to suit your child's individual needs and interests.  Praise and encouragement is also necessary, so your child develops confidence and is motivated  to learn.  We are based online so those who would like some additional educational support for their child are able contact us info@teachingyourchild.org.ukWe provide consultation support service to parents and also online tutoring.
