Play and learning go hand in hand, each building upon the other, and together they help children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and academically.

  • Learning happens when there is an emotionally safe climate and a rich, stimulating environment.
  • Learning happens when meaning is constructed from an array of information or from an experience.
  • Learning happens when learners know and can ask for what they need to assist in their process and can make choices based on their learning preferences and interests.
  • Learning happens when products are created or performances produced that allow children/learners to apply what they have learned to new situations.
  • Learning happens when offered opportunities to reflect.
