We here at Playzone understand that children learn best when they are engaging with their senses. It is through engaging with their senses that children have the opportunities to begin to comprehend different aspect of life. It is through this understanding that we have ensured Playzone can offer children the opportunities they need in order to explore a range of materials without any preconceived knowledge allowing them to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, creative, linguistic and physical skills.
Cognitive development begins at a young age and is aided and enhanced through problem solving and decision-making. For very young children we can often find ourselves questioning if there are ways in which we can present our children with problems to be solved or decisions to be made and the answer is yes. Playzone's play equipment, which is comprised, of three levels is the perfect place for children wishing to develop their cognitive abilities. By presenting children with the problem of seeking to find a way to the top of the equipment in order to experience the thrill of the slide and offering them ample opportunities to make independent decision in the process you can rest assured that your child’s current cognitive abilities are being challenged, encouraging further development.
Children at a young age do not have the ability to truly understand and define language. In order to allow your child the opportunities they require to begin to define language we must present them with opportunities to experience the meaning of the word. Here at Playzone our parent and toddler mornings do just that! Presenting children with opportunities to use their senses, particularly touch through our parent and toddler Play Doh time children are given opportunities to begin to discover new textures while also beginning to comprehend new words such as firm, smooth and bumpy. It is our sensory play at Playzone, using Play Doh with can encourage your children to begin to use descriptive and expressive language, developing their vocabulary and increasing their communication.
