Resources for Parents

NCCA

As a parent, you play a key role in your child's education. The NCCA has developed a number of resources to help you to support your child's learning in primary school. Click the sections below to find suitable resources.

HELP MY KID LEARN

The national strategy ‘Literacy and Numeracy for Learning and Life’ (Department of Education and Skills 2011), includes a range of actions to enable parents and communities to support children’s learning. 

To achieve this, NALA has developed Help My Kid Learn - a simple website that brings together relevant information for parents and the wider community to support children’s literacy and numeracy development.

WEBWISE

Webwise Parents offers information, support and advice on talking to your child about online safety.
