The learning that children experience within families is holistic, shared and companionable.

It is holistic because children learn many different things from one single experience. It is shared and companionable because children and family members learn from each other.

False


The correct answer is b.

‘Stay and play’ sessions provide children with new play and social opportunities that they cannot or do not experience at home. Equally parents learn new things about their child as they are seeing them in a different environment. They can also access child-rearing advice and make social connections with other adults with young children from their community.
