A programme for children at home.
Storyteller this week: Athene Seyler
Are you an exhausted parent of a child under the age of five? If so, Play School may be just what you are looking for. Without actually leaving home, for half an hour every day, your child can benefit from the advice of leading authorities on nursery education and enjoy the undivided attention of a changing panel of presenters - young and resourceful men and women, most of them with children of their own.
Play School will not be a televised nursery school-room. It will use all the advantages of television to do the job of a nursery school in its own exciting way.
