Children learn through play. They develop various skills through different kinds of play-based activities; social, emotional, language, maths and cognitive skills.
Parents and caregivers can play an important role in facilitating play. This means that an adult takes on an active role to direct the play with children. The adult provides specific age appropriate toys to the child to achieve a specific outcome. The idea is to develop a specific skill by choosing a specific toy for a child to play with.
