Learning Through Play
6 Hour Self Study Class
One of the most fundamental and natural things that children do is play. Even as a young infant, they will seek out playful activities with adults. As they grow into toddlerhood and preschool age, those playful experiences increase so they can explore. This exploration helps them to make sense of themselves, their community, their world, and the people that they share each day with. Play has many different benefits for young children and we are going to explore them in this class. We do not teach children how to play but rather we allow the opportunities for them to discover play on their own. Every culture in our world has their own type of children’s play and they all incorporate following the child’s own interest.
