Essential Play

Because of its importance to healthy development, Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) recognizes the right of the child to engage in play and the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for play. This course aligns with that perspective. Here we will look at how play is not just natural and fun for children, but extremely important for their development. Like food, water, security, and love, it is something they cannot do with-out. It is essential.
The course consists of 9 modules, each module should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. The modules are optimized for smart phones so you can access them anywhere with internet access. Also, the modules can be opened and completed as many times as you like.
