During the early years of your child’s life, just spending time doing everyday activities with them can make a big difference to how well they do in school. By playing, talking, reading and counting with your little one, you’ll not only both have fun, you’ll help them learn new skills and give them the best start in life.


As your child progresses to post primary school, they will need your support and encouragement to help them choose the right subjects and plan their future careers. By talking to them about what they enjoy and discussing with their school what paths may be open to them, you can help your child achieve better outcomes and reach their full potential.
