Help my kid learn

Bookmarks were distributed today in school to students. The website helpmykidlearn.ie was launched in September 2012 by Minister for Education and Skills, Rúairí Quinn. Children learn everyday – from the moment they are born they start to soak up things like a sponge – at home, out and about, even at bedtime. Help My Kid Learn is designed to support parents with fun activities and tips that can be integrated into any part of their day.
