Play is Learning

Social Development
The children learn to cooperate and work with others while they play. They also learn to treasure their own ethnic and sexual identities and those of other people.

emotional development
Play gives children opportunities to relieve pent-up feelings and promotes a sense of well-being and self-confidence.

Physical Devleopment
Play gives children a chance to develop healthy bodies and muscle control.

Cognitive Development
Children come to learn, understand, and achieve intellectual success while playing and interacting with objects in their environment.

Creative Development
Play gives children opportunities to exercise and express original thought.
