What do we mean when we say we are a play based daycare?
For toddlers active play is crucial in allowing them to test and develop all types of motor skills. It promotes significant health and well-being benefits, and helps the brain develop naturally. While research on brain development is in its infancy, it is believed that at this age play shapes the structural design of the brain. Play provides active exploration that assists in building and strengthening brain pathways. Play creates a brain that has increased flexibility and improved potential for learning later in life. Young children’s play allows them to explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning. Children who engage in quality play experiences, are more likely to have well-developed memory skills, language development, and are able to regulate their behavior, leading to enhanced school adjustment and academic learning.
