Play. Learn. Grow. Together...is Officially Launching!

November 28, 2019

playlearngrow.PNGThe Government of Saskatchewan is officially launching Play. Learn. Grow. Together!, as a new way to reach out to parents of newborn and Kindergarten-aged children with tips and information on how to help them learn at home.

Play. Learn. Grow. Together! debuts with a new website, interactive social media presence and series of informational videos to get parents thinking about simple and easy ways they can interact with their young child to assist in their development and education. Additional tips and videos from our team of early learning experts will be added over time, allowing Play. Learn. Grow. Together! to evolve into a long term, reliable source of early years educational advice.

From newborn to Kindergarten, Saskatchewan’s youngest residents learn at an astonishingly fast rate. Studies show 90 percent of a child’s brain will be developed by age five before they ever set foot in a school. That means how families interact and teach their children during those earliest years of life will lay the foundation for their success decades later.

Interacting with young children and babies is the key to their development, and it can have a profoundly positive lifelong impact. And the best part? It’s easy, and it’s fun.
