Making Time for Play


Making Time for Play helps parents and carers recognise the important role they play in the early development of their children. Funded by the Scottish Government’s Third Sector Early Intervention Fund, the project began in July 2013 and will run until 31st March 2016. It builds on the valuable relationships developed with children and their families through CALA’s work on the Early Years, Early Action programme.

MTFP is focused in Highland and Moray and highlights key messages around child-directed play, the Pre-Birth to Three guidance, attachment theory and the importance of valuing positive relatonships, working with:

  • parents with young children
  • staff working with children in settings delivering early learning and childcare
  • family health teams
  • staff and volunteers supporting parents through home visiting and peer parenting groups
