While many parents do encourage their kids to actively play, some just can’t afford to be distracted seeing their little ones run around the house or making a mess with their toys and drawing sets. Playing is the greatest way of encouraging a child’s learning and that’s why most of the activities we offer at Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare are essentially enjoyable and stimulating. Play groups, in fact, has a tremendous impact in your toddler’s life, currently and in the years to come. Below are the ways that playing can help your kids reach their fullest potential.
- Playtime enhances their creativity and lets them live their imagination.
They can be a lion, a superhero, and anyone they want to be, or create their own imaginary creatures or places using blocks, clays or crayons. By playing, they are having fun while getting more creative in the process.
- Toddlers learn by doing.
Whether they are just sitting in a corner with their friend building Lego blocks or in playing in the park, they have the opportunity to learn and discover new things. Through playing, you are letting your toddler explore the world around them, encouraging them to continually learn.
- Playing helps toddlers work through emotions and social skills.
While playing gives them more fun times, they may also feel, and eventually learn to manage, frustration, anger, sadness, and disappointment. Interacting with their peers eliminates the feeling of shyness that toddlers usually have, especially when they are new to the surroundings.
- While playing gives them plenty of opportunities for new discoveries.
It also enables them to experiment, in terms of finding out what they are good at and the things they are capable of doing.
- Through playing, toddlers enhance their communication skills and language development.
Playing gets them to talk, whether to their friend, to their toys, or to themselves.
- Being active is a foundation for physical fitness.
Playing tag or simply just running around to their heart’s content are basically the most enjoyable type of exercising. Not only will active playing help them be fit, it helps enhance their physical development.
