Suggestions to ensure a successful home learning environment:

  • establishing and following a daily routine

  • defining a space for your child to work in

  • monitoring communications from teachers and others

  • taking an active role in helping your children process their learning

  • encouraging physical activity and/or exercise

  • checking in with your child regularly to help them manage stress

  • monitoring how much time your child is spending online

  • keeping your children social, but set rules around their social media interactions

​Try to create a quiet and comfortable learning space. Your child may have a regular place for doing homework under normal circumstances, but this space may not be suitable for working in for an extended period of time.
A space/location for extended learning should be a public/family space, not in a bedroom where possible. It should be a place that can be quiet at times.

Above all, ensure you or another adult is present and monitoring your children's learning.
