Find additional ways to support your young child’s learning and growth:

  • Guiding children’s behaviour (PDF)
    Practical information for caregivers interested in positive approaches to supporting their child’s behaviour
  • Let's Play: Activities for Families
    These are activities and tips to support children to become lifelong learners. A number of adaptations for children of all levels and abilities are described, or you can adapt as you need to. 

    A few suggestions:
    • Allow your child’s interests to be your guide
    • Ask questions about your child’s choices and talk about or ask open ended questions (how or why?) about what each of you are doing as you play
    • If your child asks for help, restate the problem and ask your child how they think the problem could be solved before offering solutions
    • Give children time to think and respond to questions or to make choices

Above all, play and have fun!
