Importance of Play

“Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength,” according to an¬†American Academy of Pediatrics’ report. “It allows children to explore the world, practice adult roles, and gain confidence. And it improves children’s social skills as well, by helping them to “learn how to work in groups, to share, to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to learn self-advocacy skills.”

There is a weekly theme that focuses on a specific area of child development.  We also give out an informational parent handout and activities that can be done at home.
