Getting our skills ready for Kindergarten
We feel that play the work of children, and we support the seamless integration of literacy, science, and math concepts through theme-based learning activities.
Play encourages Social Skills
Playing can help children develop their social skills with others. By listening, paying attention, and sharing play experiences, this helps a child:
explore their feelings
learn how to express themselves
work out emotional aspects of life
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
