Learning Resources

It's easy and fun to provide early learning opportunities for your young child. You can do it anytime, anywhere - it's learning on the go! Here are a few ideas to turn ordinary daily activities into eye-opening experiences for your child.

At home: Turn everyday activities at home such as laundry, meals, and bedtime into learning experiences for your child.

Traveling: Going places is often exciting for children - learn how to make riding in the car, taking public transit, and walking educational for them, and fun for you too.

Public places: Being out and about exposes children to many learning opportunities. Learn how you can turn excursions to the market, library, and playground into learning.

Ages and Stages: Information on stage development of your child from birth to age five.

Born Learning Trail: The Born Learning Trail is an interactive, playful and visible community engagement tool.

Success by 6: Success by 6 Resource Centers provide educational training, materials and technology stations.

Child Care Resource and Referral: Choosing a quality child care program for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent!

Parenting Class Calendar: Be the best parent you can be! The Parenting Class Calendar will help you locate parenting classes available in your area.

These tips were developed for Born Learning by Mind in the Making, a project of the Families and Work Institute and New Screen Concepts.
