Play Skills

Children need to develop play skills so that they can play alongside other children and resolve any conflict that may arise.
It is important that the children enjoy regular play experiences with their family and especially with their parents from whom they will learn rules and fair play.
Children should have opportunities to mix with other children, where they can practice approaching others and initiating play, develop sharing and turn taking skills and enjoy group play.
Tip - Most young children enjoy solitary play and will need encouragement to become social in their play.
