Self Help Skills
We would be grateful if you could practice self-help and independence skills with your child at home. In Nursery we encourage your child to do the following tasks independently and would love your support to help them at home.
⦁ Put on/take off shoes.
⦁ Put on/take off trousers
⦁ Put on/take off coat.
⦁ Put on/take off tops (if loose)
Establish a Routine
If you have to isolate at home, children will be calmer if there is a predictable daily routine. Try to create a simple timetable of what will be happening and when, throughout the day. For example: snack, story, lunchtime, tv time, free play time etc. The timing can be flexible but the routine of when things will happen can bring a feeling of security to children. This should ultimately make your life easier.
