Helping your child at home in the Early Years: The Hungry Little Minds Campaign



This is a campaign from the Department of Education (DfE).

It is aimed at supporting parents and carers of children between 0 and 5 to integrate activities into daily routines to boost early language, communication and literacy.


Simple, fun activities for kids, from new-born to five


Many little things light up hungry little minds. Kids take everything in, and even the smallest things you do with them can make a big difference.


They love it when you 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 the day they start school.
