This little girl is only 18 months old and yet already she knows how to care for and love a baby. She has been in our beautiful Jiburr Studio where children aged from 6 weeks to 18 months are cared for and educated. Over the last few months, she has taken a keen interest in how the educators interactive with the very young babies and today we watched her with great warmth in our hearts as she demonstrated what she has been seeing. She carefully held the baby doll in her arms, swaying it slightly while singing Twinkle, Twinkle. The genuine care, love and dedication was obvious to all who were watching her from afar.
How true it is when they say that in childhood, play is learning.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.
But for children, play is serious learning.
Play is really the work of childhood.”
