Water Play

Summer is here! One of our favourite activities here at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach is to introduce water play. Children love to play in water... it is like magnet to them.


On hot days, it is such a beautiful way to cool off but there is much more to water play than meets the eye. Water play provides hours of rich and valuable early experience to stimulate children's creativity and imagination


Water play helps to develop eye-hand coordination and maths and science concepts,

to say nothing of the enhanced social skills that develop as a result of the social interaction with others. Actions like pouring, squirting, scrubbing, squeezing and stirring all help to increase those fine motor skills.


Introducing them to slippery, slimy, cool and warm, will also help to master that pincer grip that they need to master holding a pencil.


There are many advantages. To help introduce your little one to this type of development, please call us on 07 5471 6500 to have a chat with us. We would love to hear from you
