The Importance of Play

Brookfield stands out because of our wealth of knowledge in Early Years care and learning. We understand how to transfer these skills by training staff and supporting them in their roles. We are experts in observation and planning for learning; we assess how the children learn through play and tailor learning programmes around them. Quality play is the vital tool to teach children how to understand and to interact in the world around them.
