Have you ever looked at your children and wondered what they were thinking as they are fully engrossed in play? What concepts or ideas are they achieving while participating in play? Believe it or not, there are a lot of different things going on as children play.
Some of the wonderful things that occur when children play are reducing stress, developing language and social skills, and enhancing their cognitive skills. Play is the child’s work, and the classroom with carefully selected materials is their workstation or laboratory. It is our job as teachers to ensure that their workstations or laboratories are fully stocked and age-appropriate to facilitate their learning.
We here at H&H Child Care Training offer classes on play to help teachers become better equipped in facilitating higher levels of learning in their classrooms. To celebrate the holidays, H&H is offering The Best Promotion is Play.
H & H Child Care Training Courses grant .2 CEUs or more as well as awarding state-approved clock hours of 2 or more for all childcare centers, and family childcare providers in many states. Check with your licensing agency to check for any additional requirements and to see if we are approved in your home state.
