We believe that PLAY remains a cornerstone for how children learn with an emphasis on helping children engage in sustained, high-level play. Our goals are to:
We meet these goals by offering a variety of materials and opportunities. We give children plenty of time to explore and investigate and change materials and activities when children show they are no longer productively engaged.
Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, physical, cognitive, emotional strength and brain development. It is through play that children learn at a very early age to engage and interact in the world around them. It allows children to create and explore a world they can master, conquering their fears while practicing adult roles, sometimes in conjunction with other children or adult caregivers. As they master their world, play helps children develop new competencies that lead to enhanced confidence and the resiliency they will need to face future challenges.
