Why is play so beneficial for young children?
Parents and children experience, ‘Mutual joy and shared attunement’ when playing together, and that this can lower stress levels and provide valuable opportunities to communicate, engage and bond.
How music-making benefits children
The researchers found that parent-child music activities have great benefits for youngsters – especially when the activities happen at home. And, more surprisingly, this study suggests that the benefits of these shared musical moments may actually outweigh the benefits of book-sharing in a child’s early years.
‘Discipline Dos and Don’ts’
Our little ones are not born with an innate knowledge of how best to behave and so it’s our role to discipline them – that is, to teach them about socially appropriate behaviour.
How fewer toys leads to higher quality play
Toys are a fun way to develop youngsters’ motor skills, enliven their imagination, encourage social skills, practice problem-solving and foster independence, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
The role of sound play in early childhood services
From the moment they’re born, sound is an integral part of children’s development. Infants respond to their parents’ voices, lullabies, and white noise, and as they grow, different sounds help them to learn and connect.
The lifelong benefits of play
Researchers have linked childhood play with adult achievement, so let’s see how play can help children understand and experience the world, develop vital skills and possibly even get a good job later in life.
Tackling tricky behaviour across home and early learning settings
Whether you’re a parent or an educator, never underestimate how much children love your company. While it might feel like more effort on your part, when you make tasks fun, you meet children’s need for closeness and play, while teaching them to behave cooperatively.
Educational cooking experiences at child care
Young children’s palates are piqued as they harvest ingredients, test recipes and taste self-made meals, and along the way, mini-chefs learn key skills that will stay with them for life.
