Now owned by The Entertainer, which has branches across Kent, Early Learning Centre has teamed up with educational experts to build an entire database of ideas that are suitable for children of all ages from early years through to Key Stage 2.

Alongside a raft of different worksheets are tips for home learning and suggestions of key areas of development to focus on depending on a child's age.
