Play It’s What We Do All Day
Believe me, as a child care provider, I know you do way more than play of course. But for the children in your care, they do. In between eating, resting, and other care of their little bodies and minds they are busy with toys, interacting with friends, moving, growing, and learning.
I love to watch kids play! Once you understand the value of play it’s amazing to see what’s taking place right before your eyes.
You see new skills and development taking place. New discoveries and interests. You see a child’s physical abilities improve and friendships form.
It’s never just play! Read more about play on NAEYC.
We know the value of play, it’s never “just play”.
