Play is an Essential Part of Growing and Learning

Play is essential to develop the skills of our children and young people. It helps develop the imagination. They learn how to get along with others; and develop conflict resolution skills. Play can allow the child an avenue to express themselves. They make sense of the world; and begin to develop an understanding of where they fit in; or want to fit in, to the world around them. 

Imaginative play allows the child to ask questions of themselves; their peers; and their world. Importantly, it also allows them to question the answers they are given.

Play is an essential tool for learning; and can als be a great outlet for many children. It is their downtime; time to recharge. Different types of play will suit children differently.
