One of the roles of Playgroup Queensland is to give families the resources that inspire them to play with their child. Children are active learners and learn through play, and when you combine their natural curiosity with a parent or carer’s support and encouragement, you are giving a child valuable learning tools for the future. Introducing play into a child’s day is important as it gives them the chance to experience a wide range of sensory experiences. They can feel, smell, see and sometimes even taste the consequences of their active play. When a child plays they develop fine and gross motor skills, early mathematical concepts, the ability to connect with others, and their creative talent.
