Early Years Matters - The Importance of Play
According to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework, play underpins learning and all aspects of children’s development. As well as providing an opportunity for 'exercise in disguise', through play, children develop language skills, emotions and creativity, social and intellectual skills. FACT: a regular play session in a soft-play area like The Jungle provides children with twice the recommended daily activity levels.
Our Activity Frame
This is where the real "Exercise in disguise" starts. Race up ramps and boulders to the top of our multi-level play frame followed by a blast of adrenalin as you slide down the 45ft 4-lane slide or giant snake slide. This is what the gyms call High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Then hit the trampolines to improve muscle and bone strength and negotiate balance beams and rope bridges to develop co-ordination and core strength. Climbing Tubes and Arial Runways build upper body strength, plus a good old fashioned game of Twister to stretch out - this also helps with spacial awareness plus so much more.
