The benefits of sand-play

You may have been inside our new Early Learning Centre recently and seen the incredible sand pit located outside the front door.  Did you know that there are amazing benefits to sand-play?

As well as being a lot of fun, sand-play develops children’s motor skills and strength as they manipulate the sand in various ways. Sand-play also assists children’s creative thinking and helps their concentration. Additionally, playing in the sand pit provides opportunity for social interaction which is great for the development of children’s social and emotional skills. 

Our Prep students love their new sand pit!
