Traditionally, preschool and kindergarten are seen as the start of a child’s “formal” education, however you are his or her first – and most important – teacher. Luckily, you don’t need a lesson plan – every game of peek-a-boo, as simple as it sounds, can be a learning moment. New parents may not feel they are equipped to fill their child’s day with educational moments such as these. Of course, talking, reading, and singing together are still easy, free activities always available for you to do with your child – but coming up with new ways to engage in these activities can be a challenge when you’re home all day with your child while balancing work or other obligations.
