Play allows your child to make connections between their world & the world around them, it helps them to make sense of things, to learn from mistakes, it teaches them patience, it teaches them strength & resilience. It teaches them how to love, how to be loved, to share & build positive relationships. It teaches them to accept ‘no’, to understand that things don’t always work out, it equips them with the skills they need to deal with reality... this is why Healthy Learning Matters!
