Add in the plethora of Milestone Charts we see online. The guidelines of what your child is supposed to be doing during a specific timeframe.
But now is also the best time to learn as a new parent. The great resources are all within our reach. From health articles, parenting blogs, mommy communities, even your doctor is just one text away.

Last April 27, 2019 I attended their Power Play Forum in Estancia Bridgeway, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.
Their topic of Learning Through Play got me interested to register in the event for FREE.
Tagged as a #Momschool event. It aims to educate us, parents on the things we can do to promote different ways of learning through play.
Ms. Jammy Malli of One Hundred Ways Ph discussed the basics and importance of Creative Play.
One Hundred Ways offers a fun, functional and mobile artplay studio for children ages 1 to 12. We can be enjoyed at our upcoming locations or through direct rental for any purpose – be it for playdates or celebrations.
One Hundred Ways is an artplay studio rooted in the Reggio-Emilia philosophy which was founded in Italy in 1945. At the core of what we do is honoring and encouraging children’s hundred languages and ways of expression.
You can read more about them on their Website, Facebook page or Instagram.
What is Creative Play?
- Self Expression
- Expressing of Emotions
How to Foster Creative Play?
- Encouraging children to make their own choices.
- Offering children a wide range of creative materials and experiences.
- Providing plenty time to explore and pursue their own ideas.
- Putting emphasis on the creative process, and not the finished product.
- Showing support in the creative process, and appreciating our children’s efforts.
During the formative years of 0-6 years old, the Social Emotional skills of a child is of utmost importance to be learned. Their collaboration and sympathy with others will serve as good foundation of their behavior all throughout.
Creativity as most crucial factor for success.
What can parents do to make sure that our children is on the right track?
- Be conscious of child’s readiness
- Let Children be Children
- Let them play
There is no rush as everyone will get to learn what they are supposed to. We need to support them and let them know that we are here while they try and are sure to cheer them on when they succeed.
They also have Coach Sonny Calingo of Ready Steady Go Kids Philippines to talk about their active program for children. A multi-sport program for toddlers that are sure to use their unending energy to do something that can actually help with their development.
