Play is essential for a healthy and happy children’s development. It helps kids to develop a wide range of skills and understandings. Playing, children reflect what is important in their lives. Play can take several forms and it changes as children grow older. It could be indoors or outdoors, quiet or loud, clean or messy, funny or thoughtful. Children play for different reasons. They can explore to learn new things or it can be to consolidate or improve a skill. Our role as adults is to facilitate play for them. Learn how here.
