Reading, writing, drawing, trips out, explaining a healthy diet and why she should partake of it, everyday stuff really. At that age a lot of it is play-based learning through experience.

The curriculum for this age is focused on developing personal, social, emotional skills, communication (listening & talking) physical skills (fine & gross motor), creative- finding ways to express their own ideas: artwork, imaginary play, dance, music, maths & literacy.

So anything that encourages your child to play, be independent, try things & think about their own ideas, experiment, talk about what they are doing & seeing is educational.

I would be happy to list some more specifics if you reply with a few things your child is interested in- if you are looking for some new ideas.

He loves computers and iPads. Loves toy story and water play. He likes puzzles a lot like cut the rope and is very good at phonics. He talks to strangers about his woody toy. He likes sea creatures like fish etc. play dough and also loves school. I don't really know what else to say but thanks for responses
