A proposal from MP Graham Allen says that a national campaign should be launched to educate people in the basic principles of parenting. ToucanLearn was once described by one of our members as "a vital resource for parents and carers ... like a handbook for the 0-5’s!".
Mr Allen says this scheme would help parents do a good job and help to explain the importance of the early years of babies and toddlers. Perhaps he should take a look at ToucanLearn! We have hundreds of ideas, and games and activities for children at ToucanLearn.
He has asked the government to help ensure parents have the knowledge to be effective, nurturing and well-informed in the job as parents. He also suggests school years should be numbered from birth and not just from the start of school.
He says late intervention into children’s lives is not good enough and that in the long run money can be saved by investing in schemes for younger children.
So, perhaps everyone reading this should pop along to ToucanLearn.com and sign uo to our FREE service to help guide, and inspire parents, and to entertain and teach children! http://www.ToucanLearn.com
