The benefits of role playing among kids are fundamental in enhancing skills required for healthy development. It is no wonder child therapists use role play therapy to help children going through difficult situations and even to treat conditions such as autism.
Research on brain development and learning confirms how crucial the early years are in a child’s learning and development. Eighty-five per cent of the foundation for a child’s intellect, personality and skills is formed by age 5. Placing your child in a carefully selected early learning environment will enable them to flourish - supporting decision-making, encouraging involvement, and promoting independence.
We all know how fast toddlers can be. Those who look after little kids are well-versed in the safety hazards to look out for but when caring for an adventurous toddler isn’t your full-time job, it can be hard to remember everything you need to keep in check.
Kidsafe NSW provides practical suggestions, guidance and support to parents, grandparents, carers and anyone involved in keeping kids safe. The main focus areas are child safety in and around the home, water safety, playground safety and road safety. Kidsafe aims to make a safer world for kids!
