Developmental Play Course for Parents and Carers

Learn to play in stages not ages

Our online Academy is ideal for busy parents and caregivers seeking inspiring ideas to give their children the best start in life – whatever their age and abilities. You watch the videos and do the exercises at your own pace. We recommend that you do these courses bit by bit and see how each session changes the way you play with your child – and the way your child responds. You buy the courses for a year, so you can keep going back to them each time your child teaches you something new.
