Junior LEAF Series

There is a wide range of abilities among children between the ages of 2 and 6. Through play, young children are beginning to touch on important social skills. Young children enjoy playing in bring and colourful environments. These settings stimulate their imaginations, encouraging them to explore, pretend, and be active. Children in the 2-6 age range like to playact: practicing their social skills by emulating everyday life, as when playing, or exploring their self potential by becoming "rescue heroes".

Theme play is very important to help nurture these and behaviours. There is also something very special to small children about having play furniture and playhouses just their size. It lets them know these things are just for them, and that they are welcomed.
