PLAY & LEARNING EVENING
Dates to be confirmed
You are invited to find out more about young children’s learning and school readiness.
We are hosting this Play & Learning evening on three dates so that it is possible for both parents/carers to attend without the added concern of childcare. In the past, parents have found this evening extre
mely valuable in helping to understand young children’s learning and development.
Have you ever wondered why your child pushes the buggy around all day without a doll in it?
Have you ever wondered why your child lines up all their dinosaurs, or pours water back and forth between containers?
Looking at these questions will help us understand more about how the brain develops at this stage and different aspects of supporting our children through play.All parents/carers welcome, your child does not have to have just started daycare to attend.
