Learn Through Play
As a parent, you probably love to see your child playing. It’s incredible to hear their ideas and to learn about the new worlds they create. It’s also fun to see how creative they can be as they put their imagination to use in learning about the world around them.

2Feels fun and enjoyable for the child.
3Evolves spontaneously, rather than giving kids a script to follow.
4Is driven by intrinsic motivation about what the child wants to do.
5Creates a risk-free environment where kids can experiment and try new ideas.
For young children, play is often a full-body activity that helps them develop skills they will need later in life. Running, dancing, climbing, rolling—these activities all foster muscle development and help fine-tune motor skills. Children also build their mental and emotional muscles as they create elaborate, imaginative worlds rich with a system of rules that govern the terms of play.
Students are also given an opportunity to bring stories to life through dramatic play. When children are given opportunities to act out scenes and express themselves, they improve their social confidence, increase their ability to see the perspectives of others and increase the attention they give to the literature.
