When children are playing, they are engaged, their imagination is sparked and they are developing confidence and key foundation skills.

    The Value Of Play

    The Value Of Play

    Episode 58 Join Heather Welch talking about Play!
    In a new series for this podcast , I'm so excited to chat about my favourite topic, which is Play.
    Play is so underestimated in how important it is for children, especially in the world we have created with so many extracurricular activities, modern day expectations on busy families, schools, nurseries, and caregivers in general.
    Join me as I just stop and think about what is the value of play.
