Play. Learn. Grow. Together! Provides Parents And Caregivers With Tools To Promote Early Learning
From newborns to kindergarteners, Saskatchewan’s youngest residents learn at an astonishingly fast rate. Studies show 90 per cent of a child’s brain will be developed by age five, before they ever set foot in a school. That means how families interact and teach their children during those earliest years of life will lay the foundation for their success decades later.
“Our government understands the value of investing in children during their early years,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said. “By providing families and caregivers with useful information and tips, we can assist them in fostering creativity, confidence and skills in their young children that will last a lifetime.”
Beginning today, parents and caregivers will have access to Play. Learn. Grow. Together! - a new website, interactive social media presence and series of informational videos to get parents thinking about simple and easy ways they can interact with their young child to assist in their development and education. Additional tips and videos from our team of early learning experts will be added over time, allowing Play. Learn. Grow. Together! to evolve into a long term, reliable source of early years educational advice.
Funding for this new public outreach is being provided through the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Initiative.
Interacting with young children and babies is the key to their development, and it can have a profoundly positive lifelong impact. And the best part? It’s easy, and it’s fun. So get ready to Play.
