By nature young children are constantly in movement and need the opportunity to express their ever-deepening relationship to day-to-day life through their play. Play is the child’s way of assimilating the world that he or she experiences. Through play the child can “try on” being an astronaut or a superhero a carpenter or a doctor a shark or a bear. The child can also act out in play the tornado warning that caused so much anxiety the night before or the emotions aroused by having a new baby in the family.
Both solitary and social play is necessary for a child’s development. A child can play with a building toy alone and in the process develop independence self-sufficiency and persistence. Playing with the same toy with others the child acquires social skills such as sharing empathy and cooperation. Play is the most appropriate mode for a young child’s learning. It is a necessary step for healthy physical emotional and mental development. We believe that encouraging children’s creative free play is one of the most vital contributions you can make to their education and development during the crucial early years.
