Welcome to Learning Potential, where you’ll find hundreds of tips to help you support your child’s learning, from the early years right to the end of high school.
Research around the world shows that the more you’re involved in your child’s learning, the more you unlock their potential and help them to be the best they can – from the highchair to high school.
Learning Potential has lots of useful tips and ideas to help you make the most of those small opportunities in your busy day. We’ll show you how little activities can fit into your routine, and help you build learning into the time you already spend with your child, like when you’re getting dinner ready or driving to school.
We also give you great ideas and advice on specific topics about your child’s learning and development, no-matter what their age – from sensory development activities for babies to helping with high school maths homework.
