LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

 

The importance of play is underestimated in children's learning.

 

Through play, children learn to:

 

* express themselves

* expand their language

* be tolerant, take turns, co-operate and interact with their peers

* make decisions and exercise choices

* explore their own feelings and understand others

* develop a range of motor skills

* think critically and solve problems

* have lots of fun!

 

Every child take part in a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors. These are planned to meet individual child's interests, needs  and stage of development.

Your child's day is carefully planned to include both adult-led and child initiated play, quiet time and rest.

 

Outings are planned regularly to the park, canal walks, shops, post-office, temple, library, etc.

Children learn about the wider world around them, road safety and stranger danger.
