Play experiences offer ample opportunities to observe, explore, manipulate, test and retest theories and make predictions, tools necessary for whole child development. Firsthand social interactions are the conduit to express feelings, develop confidence, resilience, and for kids to discover their bodies and capabilities. All of this gives little ones a sense of accomplishment and self-fulfillment.
