Region Spotlight
Region 4

At Just Playing Child Care we spend the majority of our day in our outdoor classroom. To beat the heat, we have water play accessible all day, each day of the week.
When the children started to lose interest in our regular water toys, we got creative. In reality, any toy can be a water toy if you put them in the water!
