Importance of Play – Raising Children Network
Children learn and develop by playing. Play helps children build confidence, learn about the world around them and learn how to interact with others.
Play is central to your child’s learning and development. When your child plays, it gives her lots of different ways and times to learn.
Play also helps your child:
- build confidence
- feel loved, happy and safe
- develop social skills, language and communication
- learn about caring for others and the environment
- develop physical skills.
