Play allows a child to learn the skills of problem solving, sharing, working within groups and negotiation. It also plays a very important role in the mental health of your child. Play helps children to express themselves and decompress their frustration and anxiety.
With today being World Mental Health Day, we are making it a priority to promote the importance of play in early childhood.
