Play helps to build neuron connections in the brain, it is VITAL for a child to play and be playful to meet their full potential.

Through structured and instructed play your child will naturally explore all these key component's.
It is important to still have unstructured play, children learn so much from playing independently as well as having time with you during a structured activity.
In each session we will have a key component focus,
However during all the activities each of the 8 key components will be practised through play.
Play whether structured or unstructured is so important. Unstructured play gives your child time to be independent, discover at their own pace, boost confidence and creativity and work on problem solving skills.
Structured play is also important, they learn from the language you use, the guidance, the bonding time and above all having fun together through the power of play
