Children learn and develop through Play. Through active play children learn to make choices, solve problems and think ahead, it helps the child to understand the world around them and cause and effect. Messy play is particularly helpful because it stimulates many senses at once. In some children it can also help them to develop self confidence and overcome shyness.
WHAT TO BRING
You will need to pack you child a healthy snack and drink.
A change of cloths is a must as children will become very messy.
You may choose to bring a painting smock.
* we only use washable and non-toxic materials.
The class begins with singing action songs for around 20 minuets. This time will be shorter when we start the class until the children know the songs and are engaged.
We have a short break for children to take snack and refresh, around 10 -15min depending on the general mood.
We then do a different messy play activity every week for around 30min depending on individual child’s interest.
