To support families and young people through Lockdown 2021, we’ve joined forces with our Regional Sports Trust, Nuku Ora, to share a series of advice from whānau to whānau. Together, we’ll explore how the play experiences of Wellington parents and caregivers can support you as we move through the changing alert levels.
The series includes three parts, each focused on a different age group: Part 1: Sustaining play for preschoolers, Part 2: Inspiring play for primary-aged kids, and Part 3: Motivating play for teenagers.
We asked 40 local families to share their secrets to healthy, fun, child-led play, during a global pandemic lockdown. Advice ranged depending on where people lived, the weather, the ages of each of their children and the tools they had. However, there were common messages, which are a great reminder for us all.
