Learning through play is a term used to describe how children learn to make sense of the world around them. Through play children develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. Play empowers creativity and problem solving.

In our Year 0 -1 programme we allow our children opportunities throughout the day to engage in meaningful play.  Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways.

Do you have any of the following items? We would appreciate any of the following...

tyres, planks of wood, pipes, tubes, tarpaulin, nuts and bolts, stones, stumps, sheets, fabric, mats / carpet squares, driftwood, untreated wood, wooden blocks, nets, pallets, buckets, baskets, crates, bike inner tubes, boxes, logs, rope, shells and seedpods, buttons and beads, cotton reels, foam pads, sponges and boxes.  Many thanks in anticipation.
