Help your child learn

You are your child's first teacher, and at Cabot we recognise how important parents are in supporting children's learning and development, providing language skills and play activities that give children a good start in life. Once children start school, there are many ways that parents can help.


Reading with your child is really important. We ask parents to put aside a little time for reading every day. Books should be fun! If you're both enjoying a book, then take as long as you like. Remember that books aren't just about reading the words on the page, they can also present new ideas and topics for you and your child to discuss.


Try to make numbers at home as much fun as possible - games, puzzles and jigsaws are a great way to start. It's important to show how we use maths in our everyday lives and to involve children in this.
