A Bright Future for Your Child

Encourage your child's extraordinary mind

A good school education matters, but it's not enough!

Schools are busy places; they are busy teaching children all about subjects like geography, history, maths and science. They’re also teaching them practical skills like being physically active, safe online and how to tie their shoe laces. Then there’s all that they do around teaching them to express themselves artistically through drama, art and music. Let’s not forget about having to keep abreast of new technology, navigate playground relationships, manage time, proofread their work and be a contributing member of society.

With that hectic schedule how do teachers find time to add anything else? But children do in fact need more to compete in an ever changing world. They need:
  • Perseverance to manage setbacks
  • To believe in themselves
  • Tools to make good decisions
  • To think outside the box
  • An open mind and willingness to learn
  • To know when to take a risk
  • To get up and try again when they fail
So, how can you support the work being done by your child’s school?

Your child has an extraordinary mind and there are all sorts of ways you can build on their curiosity and inventiveness. StartUp Realm provides a wealth of resources, activities and challenges that you can work through with your child.
