Our in-house Learning and Development Specialist will provide you with professional advice to help enhance learning through play by incorporating play into everyday routines. We work with you and your child to better develop a range of early developmental skills. Our Learning and Development Specialist can help your child learn in areas such as:

  • Literacy and numeracy
  • Social skills
  • Attention to task
  • Communication
  • Fine motor skills
  • Concept and reasoning

Once we’ve helped select the right play-based resources for your child’s needs, we teach you how to confidently play and support your child’s development.
Our in-house Librarian can guide you through our thousands of specialised books, to ensure you can better understand your child’s needs.
We understand your life can be chaotic at times, and that’s why we offer a drop-in service. There’s no need to make an appointment, simply drop by at a time that suits you, select your resources with the help of our experts and take them home.

We look forward to speaking with you.
