Build Curiosity, Independence, and Thinking Skills

math-countersYou can start building curiosity, independence, and developing thinking skills in your child. You are their most important teacher. In the early years is when the foundational skills and readiness to learn are built.

The early years are a time of rapid brain development. Your child learns by being exposed to new experiences. Their cognitive, linguistic, motor, social, and emotional skills are best supported through using all the senses.

The relationship you build through nourishing your child’s brain with a richness of experiential learning creates joy.

What makes Teaching Parents How To Teach So Valuable?

“After 25 years of helping children to overcome learning challenges, I realised that there was a way to prevent their distress”.

Many children who are experiencing problems in grade 1 and 2 may not have a recognised learning difference, they simply have not understood some key early concepts. These children slip by unnoticed in today’s busy classrooms and often develop coping skills to cover their lack of understanding.

The solution is YOUR Participation!

“If parents knew how important their involvement was in how their children learn, they would not hesitate to take the time to participate”.

To help parents understand how, I have created a resource that will explain ‘The How to, Where to, Why to of Teaching Young Children’. Parents will find all they need to prepare their children for School, from the first finger painting to their first wristwatch. In between is a multitude of firsts that every parent and grandparent should experience. In ‘Teaching Parents How To Teach’ we will walk you through each stage, showing you how to build levels of understanding that ensure your children comprehend each step.
