National Childcare Week

Next week is National Childcare Week promoting the importance of childcare, especially in the early years of development, strengthening and contributing to children’s play and learning, building a good foundation for their future.

At Galt Toys we understand the importance of development in the early years – making sure children have a good foundation will undoubtedly set them up for school and the future!  Research over the years has clearly shown that good-quality early education benefits the child in the long term, underlining why childcare is so important.

Perhaps this explains why Gwyneth Paltrow felt the need to spend £60,000 on a nanny, and Supernanny Jo Frost’s TV show Extreme Parental Guidance on Channel 4, is a huge success. According to Jo, as quoted in the Telegraph, “The average child spends less than 49 minutes a day doing things together with their parents.”

Communication and interaction are key to a child’s development. We are always designing toys to meet the needs of all stages of child development from 0-10 years, which are fun and to encourage learning through play.

Our award winning innovative Playnest is a self-contained play environment for babies and toddlers. The triangular fabric covered inflatable ring provides additional sideways support for baby during rest and play.

Around the Playnest, there are 8 multi-sensory features to stimulate touch, vision and hearing, providing the early experience and interaction a baby needs.

To celebrate National childcare week we are giving away one Playnest  – for your chance to win please subscribe to our blog.

Closing date: Monday 25th July 2011

Winner announced: Wednesday 27th July 2011
