If you’ve made your way here, it’s probably because you’re ready for a little more support and guidance during playtime.
How would it feel if you could spend a few minutes teaching your child and playing with them, then step away and let them continue playing (and learning!!) on their own?
With the right tools you can:
- Have a simple, age-appropriate, activity available for your child every.single.day.
- Know what to say and exactly how much support to give your child with each activity.
- Learn when it’s the right time to walk away, so your child continues learning, playing by themselves, and doesn’t beg you to come back and play with them.
- Ensure your child’s playtime is helping them meet all of their developmental milestones!
