The Department for Education’s Hungry Little Minds campaign features tips and practical activities that parents can do at home with children to support their early learning. There are many simple ways to help children learn and it does not have to feel like ‘learning’. Having everyday conversations, make-believe play and reading together all make a big difference to children’s development. Settings can also direct parents to the BBC’s Tiny Happy Peopleand the National Literacy Trust’s Family Zone for more ideas and content. The Department for Education has published further guidance on how to help children aged 2 to 4 to learn at home during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
