nanny tip #3

To play. As adults we have less time and likely see less importance in play. For children, it’s how they learn. It’s how the assess shape, size and texture. How they learn about the world around them. They experience creativity.

Just as it’s important to talk eye to eye, on their level… it’s important to play on the floor, on their level. Prioritize some time on the floor – unplanned without a time limit. Kids benefit from our conversation and our own discovery. Follow their lead and see play through their eyes.
