What if my home is too small?
It is really important that children are in a home from home learning environment, where they can make develop friendships, discover, go on adventures, jump in muddy puddles, learn to dance, sing at the top of their voices, make up games, hear stories, learn what interests them and what talents they have, how to keep themselves fit and healthy. This requires a person to engage with, the resources can be a simple box that become a den or a place for animals to live and hide or even a garage for trucks!
