Positive Parenting Session - Importance of Play

Melinda Vander Reest from the Early Life Foundation presents an invaluable session about the importance of play for children.

Melinda provides an evidence-based session that explores how play forms a key component of a child’s development. In modern times, it can be seen as increasingly hard to hold onto giving your child a childhood!

This presentation gives examples of the major aspects of childhood and child development and focuses on what children need most in their early years. It highlights the importance and richness of play and how learning, life skills, self-esteem and resilience are all promoted through encouraging and allowing children to play.

This session is FREE to attend, however registration is essential.
