Every parent has what it takes to build their child’s brain and capacity to learn

Science shows us the first years of a child’s life develop the most important foundation for later learning. Play is your child’s full-time job. It develops his or her brain to be ready to learn in school. It also teaches problem-solving, creativity, social skills and empathy. You don’t need toys or other expensive things to do this for your child. You already have what you need. Every shared moment can be an opportunity to learn. We’ll show you how! Please fill out your details so we can email all the Play Africa Activity Packs to you.
