Resources to support learning

There are so many resources out there for support, it can be hard to know where to start. Here are a few suggestions of places to look for ideas and learning resources for your family.

Online educational resources

The Department for Education has produced an inital list of online educational resources to help children of all ages to learn at home. The list is broken down into subjects and they are all free. 

There's also information for parents of children too young to attend school. See the suggested activities for 2- to 4-year-olds

Tricky to teach topics

A PACEY study of 2,000 parents identified the skills that parents find hardest to teach young children. We go through the top 10 skills that parents found 'tricky to teach' and we have provided resources to support these. 

Play to learn - Facebook group

PACEY has developed a specific Facebook group 'Play to learn - activities to try at home with your child' to provide an environment that promotes and shares simple activities/routines that can be created and delivered at home for little or no cost, whilst supporting children’s learning and development in England. It's a great place for both parents and providers.
