Helping parents help their child prepare for big school


Hi I am Aly, a Teacher and Mum with a passion for helping families prepare their little ones for ‘Big School’.

Before becoming a Mum in Feb 2016 I was a teacher and spent most of my years in Preschool, Kindergarten and Year One.  I have a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and Primary Teaching, I am married to my best friend, Ben and I am a  Mum to Houston.  I enjoy thinking of new ways parents can help their children and I want to pass my knowledge on to parents.  I love the idea of children learning through play and everyday experiences where learning is engaging and enjoyable for both the children and their families. I believe that a small amount of hidden learning through play in everyday life is more enjoyable, achievable and successful in the long term.

This is a place where you can find ideas to support your child’s learning at home in between the crazy life of raising children. I am not about setting aside hours of time to help your child learn, grow, prepare for Big School and beyond. My aim for Grow to Know is to support busy parents who want to help their child learn and grow through achievable  and fun ways at home.

I would love to see your child and family learning at home. Share your learning with us on Instagram @grow_to_know

I hope you have found or will find something that you can use to help your child learn at home.

Aly xx
