The Play’s the Thing!

image in article The Play’s the Thing!

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, but there is 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 are their workstations, or laboratories.  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 and to help teachers become better equipped in facilitating higher levels of learning in their classroom.  To celebrate the holidays, H&H is offering for a limited time A Closer Look At Play for only $10!  Click here to access the coupon and start your learning journey today!
