As a parent, you are your child's first and best teacher. No one understands your child better - his strengths and needs, motivations and interests. You're uniquely qualified to know exactly which ideas or topics will capture your child’s interest and enthusiasm. And you're the best person to reinforce that continual learning is fun. Growing Learners provides practical information, ideas, and examples of how to help your child grow as a lifelong learner through discovery and exploration at home.

For example, engage in active conversations with your child to promote her self expression and ever-expanding vocabulary. Read together daily.

Math

Math experiences for young children often start with sorting and ordering objects and understanding patterns. As they grow, so does their mathematical proficiency - moving from counting, to numeral recognition, and then on to increasingly sophisticated mathematical concepts.

Science experiences for young children should captivate their attention, nurture their natural curiosity, encourage further inquiry, and help them develop strategies for finding out more about their expanding world.
