New DECD website for play and learning
10 Mar 2014

The Department for Education and Child Development has launched a new website which provides parents and educators with ideas for play and learning.

Called GreatStart (www.greatstart.sa.edu.au), the site encourages active participation in play and learning, emphasising the importance of stimulating the developing brain in the first five years of life.

The website has plenty of ideas and activities that can help you make the most of everyday learning and events. It also has important information about the literacy and numeracy skills that children develop and how these link to learning in later life.

The site will continue to add new ideas and activities.
