The Simple Play :: complex learning series is a special month of play-based learning ideas from NurtureStore. We’re going back to basics and putting play at the heart of childhood. The philosophy is to offer space, time and opportunity for simple play, to encourage our children’s creativity, enjoyment and complex learning.
