Learning how to communicate confidently and competently is an essential part of a child’s development.
Play School’s new series Connect and Play will explore different communication tools and utilise the ‘Play School Connection Hub’ to help promote further curiosity, imagination and creative thinking.
Join Abi, Alex, Sofya, Leah, Teo, Kaeng and Matt as they discover through sharing ideas and expressing emotions, we can gain a greater understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
Ep 1: Join Abi, Alex and Sofya as they draw facial expressions, send messages using emojis and sing a rainbow signing all the colours in Auslan. Through The Windows we see some playful puppeteering!
