Creative and Fun Activities for ALL the Family!
Children learn through play, there has been extensive research into this over many years and our national curriculum for under 5 year olds (Early Years Foundation Stage) is based on children learning through play.
Play time helps develop children’s language, social skills, cognitive development (problem solving, decision making, concentration, own thinking), fine and gross motor skills (big movements such as running, balancing and small movements such as mark making). Early mark making skills link to early writing skills, all these skills help your child develop the tools they need to progress through life.
Feeding your child can be challenging but here are some useful links to help you with all the questions you may have (click on the underlined titles for more details on these topics:
Weaning your child – There is a lot of advice around this but you should wait until your baby is around 6 months old as it gives them time to develop properly and cope with the solid foods.
Safe Weaning – From food allergies, choking to what food and drinks to avoid this information will help your worries.
Toddler Meals – “Your toddler should be having 3 meals a day and 2 weaning snacks e.g. fruit, vegetable sticks, toast, plain yoghurt. No need to add sugar or salt as salt isn’t good for their kidneys nor sugar for their teeth.” (Start4Life, Weaning)
Please consult your doctor if you have any worries.
