The importance of Play and Learning in the daily lives of our children...
“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning … They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play.” ~ Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood)
“It is becoming increasingly clear through research on the brain, as well as in other areas of study, that childhood needs play. Play acts as a forward feed mechanism into courageous, creative, rigorous thinking in adulthood.” ~ Tina Bruce (Professor, London Metropolitan University)
“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce (author)
"Play is the highest form of research." - Albert Einstein
