The importance of Play

Play provides opportunities for enquiry based learning and thinking

“Curiosity is the essence of human existence. ‘Who are we? Where are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?’ I don’t know. I don’t have any answers to those questions. I don’t know what’s over there around the corner. But I want to find out.”    Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan

What children learn through play.

Children's Learning

Fully understand how children learn. How well is your child learning through the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum?

Physical Development

There is a clear link between poor physical co-ordination in primary school and performance in literacy and numeracy tests taken at the age of 11. Physical coordination, balance and good posture is needed before the start of school to allow children to develop the fine motor skills required to hold a pencil in lessons. “If basic physical skills are underdeveloped, children are going to struggle with dependent learning tasks,” she said.
