Who remembers placing flowers within the pages of a favourite book in the hope of pressing them dry? I do. Sometimes it worked and I ended up with a pretty floral masterpiece. There were times when it went wrong. Either the flower was too large or it just took so long that I gave up on it altogether.

I am a fan of play-based learning. It is a concept I grew familiar with only after becoming a parent and the idea appealed to me. Children should have the freedom to observe and play, experience and explore at their own pace and that should form the basis of all learning in their early years. Not only do children learn a lot this way, but it is a whole lot more fun too.
