Why Play?

Play is the way children learn and make sense of the world around them. Play is essential to healthy development from birth to adulthood, contributing to capacity for learning, resilience, and the development of physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills. (Play Strategy for Scotland; Our Vision)

Children with access to a wide range of well-selected toys are more likely to be challenged and stimulated.
