HOME LEARNING IDEAS


We are often asked, "how can I support my child at home".  Below are a number of ways in which parents and carers can support the learning and development of young children.  Once your child has started with us at BebeTots, we welcome parents sharing pictures/videos/comments to your child's learning journey for us to share with them.
