The Hungry Little Minds campaign was launched in July 2019 by the Department of Education. It talks about the big impact parents can have on their child’s learning and that reading, playing and chatting with them are great ways of helping them to develop.
Children's brains grow the fastest during the first 5 years of life. As parents, we play a huge role in feeding our child's mind and helping them to communicate.
Many little things light up hungry little minds. Children take everything in, and even the smallest things you do with them can make a big difference.
They love it when we chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything. Whatever the time and wherever you are, you can turn almost anything into a game. And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for their school journey. Click the icon to find out more about Hungry Little Minds.
