3. Find out how you can help
It’s also a good idea to talk to your child’s teachers about what he or she is learning and how you can support their learning at home.
“If there are fundamental or foundational skills your child needs to learn, meet with the class teacher or learning support team from school and learn how to scaffold that learning for your child,” says Sharry.
“Many times, learning moves fast at school, and whilst teachers try hard to differentiate a child’s learning at their level, it can only help if parents are prepared to learn what to do and help at home. What greater gift would there be than to work with your child and give them this time?”
