Helping your child learn their alphabets can seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? Should you go in order? Our advice? Keep it FUN!
Children learn through play, exploration, reading, and observation. Learning alphabets doesn’t have to mean memorising flash cards or doing endless worksheets. There are many hands-on ways for children to learn their alphabets.
