About the importance of free play

Posted in Psychology on Monday, October 02, 2023

In our educational approach, we take into account the age-specific needs of children. That’s why we allocate time for free play – Choice Activities.

While playing, a child heals, recovers, and develops. The child’s brain is fully engaged, crafting stories, experiencing emotions, and gaining life experiences, while experimenting with various roles.

Parents often emphasize intellectual development, but through play, other equally vital aspects of a young personality flourish – emotional and social intelligence. Through play, a child discovers themselves.

Free play is a fundamental natural need of the brain. Immersed in play, a child experiences happiness, as in this world, they fully live life and have the freedom to express themselves.

Be happy when children engage in play. During these moments, children grow and mature.
