Supporting Your Child’s Development

Don’t forget that, regardless of the type of childcare you choose what you do at home can make a real difference to your child’s development.  Along with good quality childcare and early education, you can support your child’s development by:

  • Reading to them;
  • Teaching songs and nursery rhymes;
  • Playing with letters and numbers;
  • Painting and drawing;
  • Taking them to the Library;
  • Creating opportunities for them to play with friends at home or within local settings (i.e. Sure Starts, Parent & Toddler Groups, Rhyme Times Sessions at Local Libraries, etc.
