Play-Based Learning Schedule - Week 2

Children Services has developed a play-based learning schedule that can be delivered at home. The schedules provide you with simple activities you can do at home with your child to grow your child's brain, build stronger relationships and support your child's overall development.

Enjoy the sunshine while you do some gardening, bake a yummy treat to enjoy together, or do a fun science experiment. These are a few examples from our program this week. The activities are suggestions and can be moved around during the day, depending on your time availability and what works in your home.

We would love to hear from you. If you have enjoyed a fun activity or have any suggestions for different ideas, please get in touch with us and let us know!
