Why does play matter?

Blog Entry: 14th September 2020

Play is one of the main ways in which young children learn and develop.

Play is crucial to a child's development and it is an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children can develop many essential skills through the power of play such as, their language skills, emotions, creativity and social skills.

Play helps to nurture imagination and give a child a sense of adventure. Through this, they can learn other life skills such as problem solving, working with others and sharing. This in turn helps to secure their foundation for future successes.
