Activities for Children

Learn with me is a county wide campaign encouraging families to get their child off to a great start through fun activities.  It's centred around child development tips for dads, mums and carers of 0 to 5 year olds.

Stuck for things to do with your child that are fun, free and just happen to support their early learning and development too?  Then Learn with me is for you!

It's a new campaign all about giving you quick and easy activity ideas that you can do with your child from before they are born to five years old.  They're written by early learning experts and best of all - they're FREE!

Visit to discover more and to download sheets full of tips and activities.  The sheets are broken down into ages so you can pick the right ones for your child's age and stage of development.  Plus there's information about what children like and can do.  Choose between the following, or use them all!

  • Being, Belonging, Becoming - personal, social and emotional development
  • Count with me - maths
  • Move with me - physical development
  • Read with me - reading
  • Talk with me - language and communication
  • Write with me - mark making and writing
