When you play with your child, you give their brain a boost!
A child’s development begins the moment they are born; the simple activities you do at home or out and about help set them up nicely for school. And it’s not just the kids who will enjoy it, you’ll see the benefit too.
The Start for Life campaign provides lots of ideas that can help boost your child’s learning and help set them up nicely for when they go to school. You can slot them into your routine and your children will love them.
It doesn’t need a set time. You can chat, play or read with your child on the way to nursery, on public transport, while you’re making a meal or even in the supermarket.
