PLAY MATTERS!

Children learn what no one can teach them through playing. It is the only way they explore and orient themselves to the actual world of space and time, of things, animals, structures, and people. 

Through play, children endlessly practice and rehearse the complicated yet subtle patterns of human living and communication which they must master to become a participating adult in social life.

In a play-based or child-centered preschool program, children are able to choose activities based on the current interests. Learning activities such as creative arts, literacy, numeracy, social studies, science, etc. are presented to children through play.


Teachers encourage children to play, facilitating both social and emotional skills along the way. It often looks like children are “just playing”, but in fact, they are learning important educational, social, emotional, and life skills through the process of play.

FEELINGS MATTER!

Emotions are there from day one. Babies experience joy, anger, sadness and fear in their early days. As they grow older they start experiencing more feelings like embarrassment, shyness, guilt, pride... etc.
 

Helping children understand their feelings makes them better able to regulate their actions towards strong emotions. 


Children are exposed to SEL from their early days are more successful in school and daily life because they:


• Know and can manage themselves.
• Understand the perspectives of others and relate effectively with them.
• Make sound choices about personal and social decisions.

 

Other benefits include:

• More positive attitudes toward oneself, others, and tasks including enhanced self- efficacy, confidence, persistence, empathy, connection and commitment to school, and a sense of purpose.
• More positive social behavior and relationships with peers and adults.
• Reduced conduct problems and risk-taking behavior.
• Decreased emotional distress.
•Improved test scores, grades,
and attendance.
