Play ideas

Babies, toddlers and young children learn through play. You are your child’s first and most important teacher and you help your child's brain grow through play and early learning.

Playing with your young child is the best thing you can do to support their learning. The Ministry's new education portal has some great play ideas for the early learning years. These ideas can be used by anyone - parents, families, whānau, caregivers, friends, ECE services, Kōhanga Reo.

Check out the play ideas on the Ministry's education portal and have fun with your child.
