We know the young children we work with love to sing, dance and share stories. As adults we also know the value of creativity and play in a child’s development. SaamSpeel (‘Playing together’) is a project that aims to offer a creative space for families to enjoy being together. There is a different theme every month, and we use drama, movement, dance, music and art. Most importantly, while we play together, we are nurturing relationships, building the child’s self-esteem and developing emotional intelligence.

Thank you to Jessika Jones from Overmaatjies Créche for helping to facilitate this project and to Cape Wine Auction for funding it.
