Have Screen-Free Times

Computers and devices are utilised often with classroom learning, so as soon as they get home from school, kids don’t need to jump straight in front of the TV or phone.

Sports, board games, music and books are other great ways to keep your children occupied, entertained and switched on after school. Just make sure you have screen-free times each day.

Set Up A Work Space

Having separate spaces for work, play and sleep is great to make sure your children’s minds are switched on when they have to do their homework or any extra learning activities.

It can be as simple as a desk and a chair, but it will help them focus on their tasks.

Plan The Night Before

Preparing meals, clothes and school bags the night before gives you a huge headstart on the following day.

It will save you the time and the stress of running around in the morning for everything you need!

And as the saying goes: win the morning, win the day.
