Play is an essential part of early learning. It is the lifeblood of the learning process. Children imitate the big world, create their own world with imagination and develop their social skills. Yet there is not always that much attention for playing at school, even though children learn so much while playing and is makes that children are more concentrated during class.
Play is more than fun. Playing is exploring the world and your own talents. Playing is growing and laughing. Playing makes smart and strong. Playing is fun and makes you feel proud. Playing is using your imagination and developing your skills.
As children play they are developing their motor skills, senses, language and social skills. Every child will do it in its own way, at its own level. Children grow, learn to understand situations, to think ahead, to be active, creative, solve problems and to explore their limits. It's not just play, they are skills for life.
