At Only About Children, we believe in the proverb ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and through active, two way relationships with our families, it means we can understand and meet every child and their family’s unique needs more fully.

Therefore, each year we hold the Oac Inspired Parent Series - a series of presentations that bring the community’s leading early childhood experts together to engage, inspire and empower parents.

Loose Parts Theory with Jenny Kable

Children learn by doing - in fact, they crave hands-on experiences with play materials that allow them to invent, construct, imagine, transport, be messy and be creative. When they interact, explore, and discover… they are also learning! What kind of play materials work best? Well, if you want to keep your children engaged and curious then you want to stock your house with Loose Parts. Come along and join the conversation on loose parts and learn how you can easily and cheaply incorporate these at home for children from nursery through to preschool.
