Growing brains

We all want our children to do well in school and make the most of their education. But although hitting the books (or more likely the keyboard these days!) is important, there’s a lot more to successful learning.

Recent research has shown the importance of being active for children’s brain development. Children are naturally active and should be encouraged to take part in active play as this is essential for their learning and helps with self-esteem and their ability to sleep and concentrate better.

So by encouraging your child to be active you will not only help their physical development but you will aid their mental and emotional growth and wellbeing too. This will allow them to learn the necessary skills for handling life’s many challenges.
