Parents [email protected] at Norlin Playgroup

Play@Home 2015.11-02At a recent [email protected] workshop at Norlin Playgroup in Wick, parents were invited for the session and we had a great morning with everyone getting involved in all the activities on offer.

[email protected] is a physical activity programme for children from 0-5. It originated in New Zealand in 1990 and was adopted by the Scottish Government in 2008. Presented as a series of books for babies, toddlers and pre-school children, the programme provides resources for parents to help them support their children to participate in fun physical activities to improve child development and achieve strong family bonds (attachment). Many of the simple activities included in the [email protected] materials are great ways of providing the experiences that children need – as outlined in Building the Ambition, 2014.
