What's the big deal about PLAY?

Play is a BIG DEAL for our little people.
Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine.

It helps develop
social skills

Playing with others helps children develop cooperative and conflict resolution skills. They are able to test out ideas, challenge each other’s thinking and build new understandings. 

It's the way children learn about their world

It is recognised by the United Nations as a child's fundamental right as it is the way that they learn about their world.  

It helps children master new skills

Children use PLAY as the medium to practise and rehearse new skills to develop competency.  They don't even realise they're learning because it is so natural!

Develops thinking skills

Play provides a supportive environment where children can ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking.

Promotes creativity
and individuality

Play allows children to creatively express their ideas and explore their world through songs, dress-ups, art materials, language and movement.

 

Develops coordination and physical skills

Running, jumping and MOVING when playing helps develop coordination, balance and set boundaries for physical limits.

Less pinning, more PLAYING!
