Play it forward

Our inclusion pledge

The pledge helps govern the types of businesses within the community that we choose to partner with based on a set of shared values and business practises.

We believe that play is a universal human right for all children.

Without exception.

We support the creation of inclusive playgrounds in our community.

Places where all children can play, regardless of abilities.

Together, let’s build a community of play and belonging for all.

To find out more, please accept the pledge.

Why it matters?

All children need to play. And play is the right of every child.
source: UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 31.

Access to and participation in play is vital for all children from the very earliest age. It unlocks the cognitive, emotional and physical wellbeing of children and helps build enduring relationships with care givers.

First 1000 days

Equitable access to learning through play and green spaces are in the top 7 requirements all children need to thrive in their first 1000 days. The community and physical environments that children experience in their first 1000 days shape their later life outcomes, for better or worse.
