The Value of Play

Play is how children interact with the world. It encourages children to become confident and creative explorers, gaining knowledge of themselves and the world around them. Play serves an important role to help children facilitate learning, develop social skills, interact with their parents, work out feelings and thoughts, and ignite their imagination. Play is essential to a healthy child’s growth.
