Advice for parents

One of the most important things you can do as parents/carers, is to play with your children, talk with them about the everyday routines in your family and share time together.

It doesn't matter if you are at home with a baby, toddler or pre-schooler, the time you spend together is one of the strongest contributors to children's overall development.

Here you can access a range of ideas to enjoy with your children in the home and with materials you may have on hand or can access via the internet. These ideas are meant to be fun. What is important is that you are there playing alongside your child.
