The importance of play

Play skills and communication skills develop hand in hand. Play is one of the most influential and important ways a child learns about the world.

 

 By playing with both adults and children, children develop;
Interaction and social skills
 Problem solving skills
 Imagination and creativity
 Concepts and properties
 Lots and lots of words!

 

Children learn words by doing something and hearing the word at the same time, for example while scribbling, a parent might say
“you’re drawing a picture!” The child makes the connection between what they are doing and what they are
hearing.
