Importance of Play
Play is central to the lives of children and young people. Through play, children and young people explore the physical and social environment in which they live; learn and develop new skills and abilities; test out ideas and concepts; and learn how to assess and respond to risk or situations that trouble them.
What is the Pledge?
It’s as simple as this: PRIORITISE PLAY.
Commit to a goal of an hour of play EACH AND EVERY DAY. It can be at home, at school or both. It can be at a park or school playground, or simply outside playing games.
