Allow opportunities for children to choose how and what they would like to learn. This gives the some autonomy and helps them participate in their own education.
Expect the learner to ‘have a go’, its alright not to get it the first time, just keep trying! There should be no fear of failure in learning, its counterproductive because learners will shy away from attempting things if there is a fear factor.
Having an expectation of children to learn gives them some autonomy, it shows them that you trust them enough to be able to achieve things by themselves. Great for their self esteem!

Immerse your child in learning opportunities, its quite amazing how much mileage can be gotten from a simple look at a flower! Drawing, writing, colour, smell, touch, count, make, dance.
