Why is play important for children as they grow?
Watch this video showing how play helps positively shape a child’s future
We all know kids love to play, but many may not realize how important it is for developing motor and cognitive skills. Watch this video from Colorado’s Playtime, which explains the benefits of play and why it is so important.
“The importance of play cannot be overlooked…. Play serves an important role in early childhood development with five important benefits,” notes the video’s narrator. They include, physical, emotional, social, cognitive and behavioural.
At Children Believe, we encourage play inside and outside the classroom. One of our projects, Learning Through Play, is now in our Burkina Faso program where it’s set to reach 4,500 children, helping improve quality early-childhood development services.
Give a child the opportunity to play and learn today.
