Play is a vital part of a child’s development. Through a diverse range of play and physical games, our Active Play sessions help children to improve agility, balance and coordination, as well as learning social skills and developing emotional strengths. Play is proven to help stimulate children’s imaginations and as well as their ability to learn.
We run Active Play Programmes aimed at children from primary 2 to primary 5 age in partnership with Primary Schools throughout North Lanarkshire that provide children with an opportunity to participate in physical activity. These sessions are delivered for 60 minutes during school hours.
The benefits of play are enormous and can last a lifetime. Being active can improve a child’s physical and mental health and to lead a more physically active and healthier lifestyle into adulthood. That’s why all our play sessions at PASP embrace the philosophy of Active Play.
Active Play is also available as a service outside of schools in communities and on behalf of other organisations. To find out more contact a member of the PASP team on 01236 426 737 or email [email protected].
Our Play Champions programme is also linked to the outcomes of Active Play.
