We often get the question, how do children learn through play? This is typically not obvious to most adults who do not have a background in ECE. At the bottom of this article is a fun graphic that shows a snapshot of the benefits of play. These benefits of play were all found through research.
"Many parents intuitively know why play is important to children, but despite its many benefits, we rarely associate play with learning.
For most people, learning involves acquiring a specific new skill, such as memorizing alphabets, counting, writing, etc. They often believe that playing is only for fun and involves no actual learning.
However, according to studies, playing is learning. Children learn through playing.
The importance of play in early childhood cannot be underestimated because playing is essential to a child’s growth."
