Did you know that all children learn through play? Parents may be skeptical when they can’t see written work, but in fact, as Maria Montessori said, “Play is the work of the child.” Children learn and grow simply by engaging in play, and it also has many other benefits, such as improving focus and behavior, supporting social skills development, reducing stress, and more. Together we’ll explore the importance of play and the science behind it, with a focus on providing rich learning opportunities across multiple environments that are accessible to all children.
In this webinar, you’ll:
- Discover the science behind play and learn how play supports and enhances development, learning, health, and well-being
- Explore why play is important for children of all abilities and how it can benefit the students at your school
- Gain information about resources, including equipment and assistive technology, that support school-based, community-based, and home-based play
