Parents and carers of the State’s youngest learners now have more access to what their children are learning in the classroom with the Department of Education launching a new online student learning library.

Welcoming the NSW student learning library, Minister for Education and Early Learning, Sarah Mitchell said parents and carers of students in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 could now access high-quality learning resources, allowing them to better engage with their child’s education at home.

Ms Mitchell said the online resources complimented the roll-out of the State’s “once-in-a-generation” curriculum reform, which includes new parent guides to the syllabus.

“Students in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 are the first to benefit from these evidence-based, back-to-basic syllabuses and these resources will support parents to engage with what their child is learning in the classroom in the foundational areas of English and maths,” Ms Mitchell said.

“There are currently more than 200 high quality resources available on the online library, from identifying shapes to understanding pre-fixes,” she said.

“Topics come with short videos, activities and worksheets, making them accessible and easy to use at home.”

Ms Mitchell said development of the new resources was informed by the success of the Department’s Universal Resources Hub, an online library of quality-assured materials for public school teachers.
