A slow March to Spring.

And to do that…let them play!

Play benefits all area’s of child’s development. One of the most important aspects at this time and with this age group is, unstructured play – aka “free play.”

Free play allows the child to explore freely, create and discover without a set of predetermined rules or guidelines. Free play has influence on cognitive development, increasing physical, emotional, and social development. It helps with creativity, imagination and problem-solving abilities, and social skills.

Creativity and Imagination:

Mathematics and Problem-solving abilities:

Fine Motor Skills:

Reading, writing, and letter recognition:

Physical Activity and Gross-motor:

Music and Dance:

And language….en Francais!

A lot of hidden learning happens during free play! So I repeat, let them play!

Happy Friday!
