The first five years of a child’s life are critical for development. The experiences children have in these years help shape the adults they will become.

We value all our playgroups and their amazing stories. This is why, each month, we want you to meet one of them, hopefully their stories will inspire you.

Children love playing with balls of all shapes and sizes. And with good reason: balls are great for group play, organised sports or just playing by yourself. They are also suitable for a variety of age groups (from babies to children and even adults).
