Published on: 6th September 2013

Following the success of its ‘Summer School’ programme, LeapFrog has launched a ‘Back to School’ toolkit to help families fight new-term nerves and prepare for a new academic year.LeapF300

The ‘Back to School’ toolkit is now live on the official LeapFrog UK website offering support and expert advice for parents with children aged 4-9 years. From tips on how to balance work life around a new school routine to 10 things primary school teachers wish parents knew, the toolkit forms part of LeapFrog UK’s autumn initiative to encourage home learning practises. Their debut ‘Summer School’ was launched to help kids battle ‘brain drain’ over the six week holiday, and now their follow up tool kit aims to help both them and their parents ease smoothly in to the new term this September.

There  is a wealth of printable exercises for children to download and enjoy to ensure ‘Back to School’ momentum is maintained at home, and as you would expect from the leaders in educational entertainment, each exercise has been specifically designed to challenge and develop key curriculum skills in a fun and engaging way.

Sally Plumridge, LeapFrog UK’s international marketing director, commented: “As September can be such a whirlwind for families, we wanted to create a one stop shop for parents and their children to help ease any confusion at this back to school time. We have bite-size tips for Mum and Dad, fun challenges for kids, as well as guidance on how to create home ‘work zones’ to motivate children during out of school hours. This initiative combined with our wealth of educator approved learning toys such as LeapReader, our new reading and writing solution, demonstrates our unswerving commitment to fuelling kids passion for learning as well as supporting parents during this exciting journey.”
