From your preschooler being fascinated with how night and day happens, to your teenager needing to know what time to be home by, learning to tell the time is a skill in which parents can easily support at home.

Children in all schools are taught the concept of time from their first year in primary school. It is a skill that is built on the understanding that a child already has and there is a lot more involved in learning to tell the time than just being able to read a digital watch.

It's a good idea to gain a good understanding of what your child is learning at school which will allow you to fully encourage and support their learning at home.

As a parent you are not expected to teach them the necessary skills but rather provide them with opportunities to apply their existing knowledge in the safe, fun environment of home.
