A happy, organized play space should be inviting, not intimidating. It should be accessible, not limiting. It should be comfortable, not sterile. It is our responsibility to provide such an environment for the children in our care. Children are no different than we are when it comes to learning.. if we are unhappy in our environment, we will not progress.
We have designed our playroom not only for our own tastes, but for the needs and desires of the children who play here.
Play is important for a child’s social, emotional, language, cognitive and physical development. To see the latest research about play and learning, you can visit: http://www.ed.gov.nl.ca/edu/earlychildhood/power.html
