Parent Story

In this short video, parents share stories about their children’s socialising and social development through regular contact with other children and adults.

Through socialising, children develop a sense of self, as well as confidence and important social skills such as teamwork and sharing. In fact, young children need social interactions for their overall learning and wellbeing.
