Playing, dancing, talking, reading, even helping cook or tidying up -  
did you know that every time you do these things with your child, they are learning?
Did you know that your child's brain is almost fully grown when they are just six years old? 

When you help your child learn before age six, you are building a foundation for social, emotional, physical and academic skills that will last a lifetime. 

Simple activities like dancing, singing, talking, reading, playing and exploring with your child help to build their cognitive skills, language skills, spatial and math concepts, social skills, empathy, motor skills and problem-solving skills. 

The Ministry of Education has released a series of helpful videos to learn more about the importance of learning in the early years and what you can do to help your child.
