For Parents and Children Aged 4 to 6 Years 



Parents are children’s first most enduring teachers. You play an important role in providing a home environment that promotes your children’s development, communication skills and school readiness.

What is Purposeful Play?

Developed jointly by the Ministry of Social and Family Development and the Parenting Research Centre from Australia, the Purposeful Play programme seeks to help parents develop their child through play and common home activities.


Key areas covered

Parents will be equipped with knowledge and skills to:

  • Think about ways to create a warm and stimulating home environment for your child
  • Use everyday activities to develop language and problem-solving skills to enhance your child’s school readiness, as well as to bond and strengthen your relationship with your child
