Why Play Works for Kids 

 

All of the domains of a child’s development – cognitive, social, emotional, and physical – are unified through play.

Playing is how kids learn about the world and their place in it. It’s the natural language of children, even before they’ve mastered verbal communications — and sets the stage for future learning and success from the classroom to the workplace.

It aids in a child’s ability to interact, negotiate, and compromise with others.

It’s where kids play out scenarios that can happen in real life and where they learn and practice strategies to cope with fear, anger, and frustration. 

Free play is the main way children learn to control themselves, get along with peers, and become emotionally resilient. Even simple play like block building, drawing, running, and jumping all contribute to the development of fine and gross motor skills.
