PLAY IS ESSENTIAL TO EARLY LEARNING Play Audio



Parents should be relieved when they pick up their child from preschool and they say that “playing” was the best part of their day. Play is not a break from learning – it’s the way young children learn. Several studies have shown that children learn more from educational activities that support their own interests and ideas and play is the main way children learn and develop the skills necessary for critical thinking and leadership. K-State Research and Extension child development specialist Bradford Wiles says to forget about sitting preschool-aged kids down at the table and using work sheets, drills and flash cards to learn about letters and numbers, what they really need is the freedom to play.
