Empowering Families: The Crucial Role of Digital Support in Early Education
In a September update, Nursery World brought to light an essential report emphasising the critical need for digital support aimed at parents and families, along with the significance of fostering a unified and well-coordinated learning community surrounding young children.
This insightful report, titled ‘The Role of the Family in Early Years Education,’ was published by The Children’s Alliance—a collaborative platform uniting individuals and organisations dedicated to shaping brighter futures for children across the UK.
The report was sponsored by online learning platform Babbu, which was developed during the pandemic with the help of early years specialists, parents and clinical psychologists. The two collaborated to shed light on the urgent and necessary measures required to make early years education fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
The overarching goal of this report is to urge the Government to invest in an early education system that works for everyone. This includes providing funding to ensure that every region has access to high-quality digital initiatives. Such initiatives are designed to empower families to foster their young children’s learning, both at home and within early years settings.
Every family, regardless of their circumstances, plays an indispensable role in their child’s education. We firmly believe that all families should have equal access to the support they require to help their children learn, grow, and realise their full potential.
In line with this commitment, we take great pride in offering ParentHub as an integral component of our ParentZone app. ParentHub serves as an online resource hub, brimming with valuable materials, information, and activity ideas. Its purpose is to enrich child development by encouraging a continuous and engaging learning environment within the home.
