We have developed Little Life Smart Kids using a series of three play-based incursions relating to health, safety and building relationships.
It's so important to embed healthy habits in children from an early age. Research shows the impact of play-based learning can improve language and social connections and extends into other areas of development too.
High-quality play-based learning can:
- strengthen neural pathways associated with learning
- enhance well-being
- improve memory and organisational abilities
- teach children self-regulation and problem-solving skills
- encourage creativity and critical thinking
