Importance of Play

Mar 7, 2016

This session will define play, review stages of play, and discuss strategies participants can use during their interactions with young children to support learning through play.

The benefits of play are well-known and undisputed. Play promotes children’s development in all areas. Through play, children are learning how things work, how to use their bodies, how to solve problems, and how to get along with others. Play is an avenue through which children can express their emotions, build relationships with others, and master difficult experiences. This session will define play, review stages of play, and discuss strategies participants can use during their interactions with young children to support learning through play.
