Ever wondered why children are so drawn to play? It turns out it’s not just for the sheer joy; it plays a significant role in their development. In our childcare centers, we wholeheartedly embrace play-based learning because it’s not only effective but also a delightful adventure for your little one’s early education.

Why play-based learning is so effective:

It is not just playtime; it is learning time! When children engage in play, they are not merely having fun; they are actively acquiring skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. Play-based learning acts like a effective gateway to exploration, experimentation, and understanding the world. It is the key to unlocking imagination, creativity, problem-solving, and those crucial social skills.

Why choose play-based learning program:

It is like a comprehensive hub for your child’s development. From physical coordination to emotional intelligence, play-based learning covers all the bases. It is where children learn to express themselves, resolve conflicts, and forge lifelong friendships. Moreover, it allows them to set the pace, granting them the freedom to learn based on their interests and strengths.

The ABCs of play in development:

Play is not mere child’s play; it’s a workout for the brain! Whether it involves solving puzzles, imagining adventures, or exploring the world, play-based learning fosters problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity. Socially, children learn to share, negotiate, and comprehend one another. Emotionally, it provides a safe space for them to express feelings, cope with stress, and build resilience.

What’s inside the play-based learning toolkit:

Have you ever wondered what’s in a play-based learning plan? It’s a bit like having a toy box filled with different things to do. There are organized activities, like building with blocks and using art supplies. You also get to have free playtime. Imagine playing with water and sand, pretending to be different characters, and enjoying outdoor games for some nature fun.

Crafting the perfect play zone:

Creating a play-based learning environment is similar to setting the stage for a blockbuster show. It needs to be safe, stimulating, and free from hazards. There should be ample space for children to move around and explore, along with a variety of materials to spark their curiosity. Our childcare centers at Brampton, Hanover and Port Elgin provide the right space and environment that makes it perfect play zones for children.

Daily routines infused with play:

Integrating play-based learning into daily routines imparts a sense of structure and fun to children. Whether it’s during circle time, snack time, or transitions between activities, weaving in play-based learning keeps the excitement alive throughout the day.

Teachers as playtime enthusiasts:

Teachers are not merely observers; they are the enthusiasts of playtime. They create a warm environment where children feel secure to explore, take risks, and learn from their adventures. With a keen eye, they guide and support, posing questions, providing materials, and encouraging teamwork.

Parents as play partners:

We ensure that the parents are not excluded from the playtime fun! They are invited to participate by engaging in play activities at home, attending conferences, and even volunteering in the classroom. Communication between parents and teachers is essential to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding a child’s progress.

Checking the play-based learning report card:

Wondering how to gauge the success of a play-based learning program? Observations, documentation, and assessment tools help evaluate the impact on a child’s development. Regular check-ins with parents, teachers, and the children themselves provide insights into what’s working well and where there’s room for growth. The Little Bloomers Childcare Center ensures that we keep the parents well engaged and well informed with the periodical progress of the children.
