Support your child’s education, at no extra cost

Support your child’s education, at no extra cost

Every parent wants to give their child the best possible start in life and one of the most important parts of their life is education.

When it comes to supporting your child’s education, a parent’s involvement is key. But let’s face it, investing in your child’s education can be expensive and time-consuming, and with so much information out there, it can feel stressful and worrying to know how to best support your child’s at-home learning. 

Talk and listen to your child

Early on in life the conversations that happen at home influence the language skills a child learns. This is the reason it’s important to talk and listen to your child. Ask questions, chat to them about your own interests, and show them that you really care about what they share with you. 

Encourage reading at home

Reading is the key to lifelong learning, and the right literacy apps can be a great addition in teaching your child the foundational skills they need to become strong and confident readers, while also helping them with a daily reading routine at home.

A busy parent’s guide to investing in your child’s education

A busy parent’s guide to investing in your child’s education

Learning to read is one of the most important things a child will ever learn. All parents want to help their children become confident readers, but it can be tough to know where to start. 


As overwhelming as it can feel, it is also a really exciting stage in your child’s life.

You are not alone in this journey. There are tools to help make the process easier and fun for everyone. 


Turn everyday routines, like breakfast time or the commute to school, into an opportunity to read. For example, audiobooks and digital books available on a smartphone or tablet are great tools for encouraging reading during car or bus journeys to school and back.  

Research shows that learning to read in your mother tongue is key to later learning to read in English or another language.

Here are simple activities to help make learning to read at home enjoyable and engaging for kids:

  1. Bake or cook together using recipes your child can read aloud and follow on their own. 
  2. Encourage reading of everyday objects in the home, such as labels on food products. 
  3. Play kid-friendly crossword puzzles and board games that build reading skills and social skills, such as Boggle, Rory’s Story Cubes, Bananagrams or a classic like Monopoly. 
  4. Keep a variety of reading materials in the home, including kids’ magazines, newspapers, comic books and magnetic alphabet letters.
  5. Leave notes in your child’s lunchbox, on the fridge,  or around the house for them to read. 

Encourage an interest in reading

Every child has their own style and interests. By allowing your kids to pick topics or genres based on their own interests, they’re more likely to stay motivated and engaged in what they’re reading.

By giving them a choice in what they read, they can learn independence and discover new ways to feed their curiosity.

We understand that a parent’s involvement in their child’s reading journey is important, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be stressful or time-consuming. With the right tools and support, all children can learn to read, no matter their level, at any time and anywhere.
