Our children are our most important gift.

Welcome to 

Learning and Fun

People worry about their children's education whether they are at school or homeschooled.

Hopefully, this website will help take some of that worry away.

Learning is a journey - and that journey starts from the moment we are born, and some say even before then. If we are lucky, the learning journey will last for the rest of our lives.


One definition of the word learning is '

The act of a person who gains knowledge or a skill'.  

Play is a very important part of that learning. Not just learning how to pour water from one container to another, or learning to take our first step, but learning the skills we need for adulthood. Through play we all learn so much.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” -George Bernard Shaw

There is so much information in books and on the internet about how to help your child learn. Sometimes, the more information there is - the more trouble we have finding just what we want to find.  

Helping your child learn is a lot easier than the experts like to make out. You already have all the starting points that you need to help them on their journey - it's called instinct. All you need are some ideas to make the journey enjoyable and fun.


This website will help you with some of ideas.

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.
