It’s Time to Play! Play is essential at all ages. Powerful use of the imagination can be channeled into creative outlets as children become teenagers, and finally, inventive and productive adults.
Play is often regarded as merely a way for children to pass the time. Today, however, research has proven that it is far more than silly whimsy – play is serious holistic learning business.
For children, learning is a hands-on, deeply immersive process of exploring a subject, asking questions, and enthusiastically seeking answers. This self-directed approach applies not only to young children of preschool and kindergarten age, but to children of every age, even well into their teen years.
