Better Health - Start for Life

Better Health - Start for Life logo

The Start for Life campaign provides lots of ideas that can help boost your child's learning and help prepare them for school. 

You can fit these activities into your daily routine, your child will love them and you will too:

  • Playing ‘I spy’ with them, 
  • Talking to your child about what has happened so far in the day for example:
    • “We went to the shops this morning, didn’t we? We bought some apples.”
    • And talk about what is going to happen next – “After lunch we’ll do the washing up”
  • Looking at picture books together. With each new page, give your child time to point out things to you and talk about what they can see

It's something you could do on the way to nursery, on public transport, while you're making a meal or shopping, and it doesn't have to feel like 'learning'.

Please visit the Start for Life online hub for more simple tips and activities, or to find further support in your local area.
