The Power of Play in a child’s development
Learning through play is where my career in parent education began in 1996. I am passionate about play and the value of real toys and games in early childhood development. I believe every human being is hard-wired to play – it is part of our very DNA. It is the easiest way to connect to another human being and the least stressful way of teaching a child anything.
I am the foremost toy judge in South Africa and have been judging toys and games for the past 19 years. I am a toy trends commentator and create short lists of highly recommended items that are much anticipated each year. I am trusted for my independent opinion on what’s good and what’s not by parents, educators, therapists and members of the media.
