The Value of Play-Based Learning

Young children work hard at play. Play has been shown to lay down the foundational architecture of the brain that is essential to learning language, literacy, math, as well as developing the love of learning, a quality considered most critical for longer term, sustained interest in learning. Our Co-op teachers carefully craft an environment and curriculum that is centered around play.

“The vast majority of parents want their child to be happy. Happiness research indicates that play is an integral part of being happy. Its foundation is laid in preschool years so that even as adults, those preschoolers will continue playing, so they can be happy!”
