Children Learn Through Play

“In play children are having fun.  The positive emotions associated with play are as important as the skills they are building to create a disposition that embraces learning.  In play children express, explore, combine and extend what they have learned about the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of the world around them; about the words, signs, symbols and customs of their language and culture; and about their own and other people’s thoughts, feelings, ideas, and sensations.  In the play scenarios children invent and explore by themselves and with other children, they bring together everything they have learned and are wondering about.” (Early Learning Framework, p. 12)
