​​Celebrating 150 years

of PLaY

  • Children need an opportunity to move their bodies for optimal childhood development.
  • Play in the 19th Century focused on activity rather than on objects. Children engaged more in imaginative play which  helps develop self-regulation, social confidence & problem-solving skills.
  • Play is more than fun and games, it is essential for child development.
