What educators say about Play Active?

Play Active made it simple to integrate energetic play throughout the day. This had instant benefits for us – we found that it helped to tire the children out a little, which improved their naps. It also had a calming effect and they ended up behaving better when they weren’t active.

Like most educators I suppose, I thought my kids were getting enough physical activity. But we found out from Play Active that although the kids were moving, they weren’t moving energetically
