" Our objective as a collective in this inaugural Africa Play Conference must be to engage many professionals and stakeholders on the evolving view that play is actually the backbone of learning for young active minds.

It is generally agreed in the scientific community that when children are interacting with peers and teachers in a playful manner - learning seems perfect for developing language and mathematical skills. Play has a massive impact on speech development with some children starting to talk as early as six months old.

The Africa Play Conference’s programme is designed to facilitate an advanced understanding on the whole value chain of the significance of Play in learning and teaching".
