The five ways: Play
Our children love to play,
and playtime is an important learning opportunity.
An opportunity to use their imagination and learn new skills.
Skipping, dancing, walking, even babies crawling around
are all chances to learn.
By encouraging your child to play,
you are supporting their learning
which gives them a bright future!

From birth, babies are learning by watching and playing with you. You are your baby’s favourite toy. By making eye contact, talking, singing and playing with your baby, you are helping them learn.
As they grow, babies, toddlers and school-aged children are learning through play as they try out new ideas and explore.
Ok, let’s play!
