The Importance of Learning through Play

Play is fundamental in a child’s early development.

Play is some serious fun which allows babies and children to learn. A well planned environment is vital in providing children with absorbing and stimulating activities which enable them to learn through meaningful play experiences.

Play is critical to the healthy growth and development of children. It is a natural way for children play to learn and solve problems, to get along with others and to develop the fine and gross motor skills needed to grow
and learn.


Breakfast & Afterschool Club

Tender Years Creche also run a Breakfast and Afterschool Club for parents who have an earlier start or perhaps a later finish to their day - either on a permanent or occasional basis. toys-creche-playtime-naas-caragh-kildare

What is HighScope?
HighScope was first established in the United States in 1969. It is an approach to early learning which identifies and builds on children’s strengths, interests and abilities. The HighScope approach enables children to be actively involved throughout the whole play session.
