My advice regarding homework is to start when your child is one! This may sound odd but homework can be classed as any educational work done in the home.
For a toddler ‘homework’ can be:
- Spending 30 minutes with you while you read to them
- Using playdough
- Colouring with crayons
- Finger painting
- Playing with musical instruments or pots and pans (if you don’t have any instruments)
- Water play, sand play and the list goes on...
The main goal is that your child completes an activity that is educational. Most toddlers will need your help so this is also great bonding time but also great practise for you as their ‘homework’ will only get harder and longer!
