Lockdown a year on in this small business

We are just past the year anniversary mark of the very first lockdown, the anniversary that no one wanted to celebrate!

Learning through play

Learning through play

Play supports the basis for all learning and development and whether children are playing together, with you or on their own, learning will occur naturally. Learning isn’t just about reading and writing or sitting at a desk, but also about growing confidence, building positive relationships, developing physical skills, managing emotions, developing communication and language skills, plus lots lots more. Play can develop all these skills and also encourages children to try things on their own, problem solve, take risks and practice new ideas and skills. All of these things are vital in life and will support the more focused subjects...
