In a play-based program, children choose activities based on their current interests. The term “play-based” is often interchanged with “child-centered.” The play-based classroom is broken up into sections, such as a play house or kitchen, science area, water table, reading nook, space with blocks and other toys, or a variety of other play station areas. Teachers encourage the kids to play while developing social, cognitive and physical skills along the way. Through play children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.
“Do not keep children to their studies by compulsion but by play.” -Plato
