Home Learning for Toddlers: Get the Support You Need
The world has changed quite drastically in the last few weeks. Due to the outbreak of COVID‑19 we've had to change the way we live altogether, including the way we work, study and interact with each other. With mass school shut downs and city‑wide lockdowns in place, homeschooling has become the norm in many countries across the world.
Many school‑aged children are already in the rhythm of following a teacher‑led homeschool curriculum, but it's a bit trickier to try and occupy toddlers who are used to group activities with other children and plenty of outside playtime at the park.
While there's been a wealth of resources for school‑aged children, it's important not to forget little ones under the age of five. With many of them missing their day care or preschool routines and weekly interactions with grandparents and other children, it's helpful to find some indoor activities that suit their age and ability and aren't only educational but also fun. And if it gives you a much‑needed break from your lovely toddler then that's ok too, right?!
Reading Eggs Junior, part of the multi‑award winning Reading Eggs programme, was designed by experienced primary school teachers to help children aged 2–4 develop crucial pre‑reading skills. Featuring hundreds of exciting activities and games for toddlers to do at home, this programme is ideal for keeping toddlers entertained and learning during the current lockdown measures – giving parents everywhere the peace of mind they need to get on with the job of being parents.
Read on to see all the fun home learning games and activities that are sure to keep your toddler entertained and give you the home learning support you've been looking for!
