Creative Ways to Support Your Child’s Learning and Development

Posted on 08-08-2017

How a child grows and develops is an amazing process! From birth, most children automatically know many simple yet life-sustaining skills like swallowing, crying and eventually smiling. It’s not long before the toddler is mobile and busy exploring their environment. Although some learning is natural like eating, walking and laughing, most of your child’s early learning will be the result of deliberate, well-planned educational experiences like those at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Cumming.

While a formal learning experience is crucial for your child’s development, there are many informal ways to learn that will also support your child. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies has compiled a few valuable ways that parents can support their child’s learning experience:

Talk to your child’s teacher about the curriculum they are using. Ask what you can do at home to support the learning experience. If your child is learning a foreign language or new skill, create opportunities for your child to demonstrate and practice what is being learned. Reinforcement is a key to progress.

Have engaging conversations with your child that gives her an opportunity to tell you how she feels or what she thinks. Ask questions like, “What did you learn in preschool today? Why do you think he did that? How do you like this?” The goal is to help your child create a pattern of thinking, communicating and reasoning during normal activities and events.

Learn through everyday activities. Informal learning can happen in many different ways. If you are preparing a meal, show your preschooler how to measure the ingredients. If you are planning a trip, let your child look at pictures, hear you talk about where to go and what to do when you arrive. If you attend a sporting event, talk about what’s happening in the game, discuss the rules of good sportsmanship and the history of the sport.

Your child learns at home, in school, from the environment – just about anywhere. With informal learning and the well-planned strategies of an accredited preschool program, infants, toddlers and preschool-age children are afforded an advantage that continues throughout their educational lifespan. When parents support the educational process, learning becomes a positive experience that children enjoy. With parental encouragement, your child’s educational experience can become fun and exciting, laying the foundation for ongoing educational excellence.
