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