Frequently asked questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is World Play Day?

World Play Day is an annual celebration of the importance of play, inspired by the International Toy Library Association (ITLA), and celebrated in over 40 countries around the world. This year’s theme for World Play Day is “Playing is healthy”. In January 1993, South Africa signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child with 194 other countries and recognised the importance of “Play as a right”. Cotlands’ mission is to increase access to quality play-based opportunities for all children in South Africa.

Why is play important?

Play is an essential activity for the foundation of a child’s learning. Through play children explore the world and develop literacy, maths, life and cognitive skills.

How many children do not have access to an early learning programme in SA?

Over 1 million children in South Africa have no access to early learning opportunities. Support Cotlands on World Play Day and you help to give children access to toy library or early learning playgroup.
