It is important to realize that play is:

  1. How children learn – playing together will help form a bond, to enjoy the local park together for example.
  2. Social skills –  interacting with others, social norms, independence and learning to share.
  3. Helps to develop self-motivation – a child at play is self-motivated and actively engaged.
  4. Helps accelerate a child’s cognitive development – for example swings help kids learn perceptual processes and body awareness through space
