Gonna stop the virus

Gonna stop the virus – stay at home!

Oh, we’re gonna stop the virus – wash your hands!

Oh, we’re gonna stop the virus – wash your hands!

Oh, we’re gonna stop the virus

Gonna stop the virus

Gonna stop the virus – wash your hands!

Parenting Tip –  Importance of Play

Children lean best when they are having fun! Play will help your children in so many ways. Even 10 minutes play with each individual child a day can make huge differences to their lives. As well promote learning, pay can improves family relationships and helps with children’s behaviours as well.
