"Play" is fun but why is "Play" important?

Play is more than something to keep children out of adults way.

Through play children learn:

  • about their world

  • about themselves - physical coordination, managing and understanding emotions, thinking and reasoning

  • How to get along with other children - how to listen, take tearns, cooperate and share

Children learn best when they have interesting things to do and interesting people to help them! It is not always easy for parents to think of play ideas that captivate their children's interest. At the Evanston Gardens Play Centre Michelle will provide a variety of play experiences that parents and children can enjoy together.


What's in it for me?
