Learning For Kids


How to make learning for kids fun to nurture your child's curiosity and help cultivate the interest in learning.

Learning for kids is natural, they are curious, and this needs to be recognised and nurtured. Yet many of us are guilty (sometimes unintentionally) of hushing or ignoring our children’s eager questions when these come too fast and furious for us to answer.

Be patient with your kids to give them the room to learn and find out more about the world around them. This innate sense of curiosity can help your kids to grow into intelligent and well-adapted individuals. Here are some ways that you can help nurture your child’s curiosity.

Give positive reinforcement

For children, there is a greater satisfaction from discovering new things if the people they love and respect (their parents of course!) are there to share these discoveries positively.

Give your children words of praise or a rewarding nod of approval to give them the confidence they need to sustain their curiosity.

Recognise the different styles of learning for kids

Children learn in different manners and at different speeds. Understanding your child’s temperament and learning style will help you to better facilitate your little one’s learning journey.

Some kids might be more adventurous with learning experientially by heading outdoors to touch, smell, taste and explore their surroundings. Others might prefer to read and discover new knowledge and fictional worlds through books.

Work closely with the school teachers

Work closely with your child’s teachers and support them in their planning of lessons or programmes that strive towards achieving this outcome.

Give more importance to the value of creative outlets for kids, rather than focus on just academic achievements alone.
