    What Is Heuristic Play and Why Is It Good for Our Children?

    January 11, 2018

    Heuristic
    adjective
    “enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves.”
    Have you ever experienced a specific moment with your child where they’d rather play with the box that a new toy has come in rather than the toy itself? Or even another everyday object over a new toy? If you have, this is what is known as heuristic play.

A Special Journey

As parents, we understand how important it is to choose the right day-care provider for your child. We know how hard the decision is to leave your child for the first time and, for some, how difficult the return to work can be.

Testimonials

  • "Alfie has attended the crèche since he was 10 months old, I can honestly say he has enjoyed every day. From the baby room, to the toddler room he is now in, he has clearly been well looked after. All staff we have dealt with are child focused, attentive and friendly and clearly work hard with the children, as Alfie has come home singing many new songs (always with a dance to go with it!!), nursery rhymes, numbers, letters, colours and much more. Parents evenings have been informative and give a good insight into what the children get up to every day. Foodwise, the crèche have been accommodating with food allergies, and the variety and quality of food the children experience is excellent. Alfie has experienced many different foods, and whilst he hasn’t liked them all, we consider it a great way for trying out new tastes and flavours. Alfie goes in smiling and comes home smiling, as parents we couldn’t ask for more." – Sally Abel (NPT)
