Did you know how powerful play is?
By the time a baby is one, their brain has doubled in size, and by the time they are 5 years old, it is nearly fully grown. That growth doesn't just happen by magic - it's a result of connections being made in the brain when your little one is stimulated by sensory experiences such as movement, touch, playful attention and love.
As a parent we always will want the best for our children - but what if you found out that one of the best things you could do, was play with them?!
By engaging in a variety of play activities and understanding the impact they can have, we can create environments for children to experience the power of play and all the benefits that come with it.

Children can learn about the world whilst interacting with different objects.
