Below are links to online resources to support learning at home, which may be useful to share with families:

The Highland Digital Schools Hub has useful guidance to support families with learning at home.

Parent Club offers up-to-date guidance from the Scottish Government on children’s health and education. It’s full of hints and tips from other parents and carers who’ve been there before. It also has advice to help parents look after their own wellbeing and to point them in the direction of the support available.

Play Scotland’s Parents and Families page signposts a range of practical ideas to support play in and around the home.

NHS Scotland have produced useful Play@Home booklets which are full of excellent ideas to support play and learning at all stages of early childhood in settings and at home. PDF versions are available on the links below.
