All our very young children engage in “Heuristic” Play, they enjoy finding out about objects and discovering what can be done with them. The approach uses natural and household objects presented to babies and children so they can experiment and discover independently.  

Heuristic Play is a way of offering children a range of objects to explore freely, with little adult intervention. This type of activity encourages children to participate in activities for longer than a few minutes! Treasure baskets are a great resource and can contain spoons, boxes, and wooden and natural objects to explore.
