Please supervise your child with your bag of resources at all times

Heuristic Play

Heuristic play is a simple child-led approach to helping your little one learn. Heuristic play allows babies and young children to make choices and develop preferences using a variety of natural and household resources.

Playing with the treasure baskets must be as child-led as possible. With your not-yet-mobile babies, their learning can be supported by sitting them up and handing them materials to explore.

Have fun with your little one exploring the never ending learning opportunities of Heuristic play.
