Why Child-led play & learning?

Child-led play gives children the freedom to explore and learn as they wish, with the support of adults.

By allowing children to take the lead, we can identify what interests them and focus in on this to help them understand and connect with their surroundings on a deeper level.

All our sessions are child-led to create greater learning opportunities, help develop self-esteem and build confidence.
