The Importance of Play

We are always encouraging our Early Starts to play cooperatively, be respectful of one another and most importantly, be kind. Engaging in play is beneficial for all of these life skills. The children in the Early Start classroom are always learning to sustain and extend their play. Play time is a busy time in the classroom and the children are guided by teachers and given the tools and language to help them problem solve independently. Many of our children are developing strong empathy skills which just happens to be our character trait this month!
