Play is the most natural way for children to learn, grow, develop and make sense of the world and their place within it. Play has many benefits including building imagination and creativity, helping develop fit and active children, as well as their emotional resilience and well-being.

Play is for all children, even teenagers! Play and learning go hand-in-hand and there should be time made for play every day.
