Children learn naturally through play experiences — either self directed, peer directed or adult guided —children who are provided extended time for exploration and play will gain critical thinking necessary to meet and surpass developmental milestones.
A play-based model is a thoughtfully planned environment that allows for the teachers to seek out and find what interests the children and what strengths the children are showing, then building on these interests and strengths to assist children in making the best possible choices each day.
Children who are given more opportunities to learn through play in the early years are better able to navigate social and emotional issues that arise later in elementary school and hence, are better able to learn and concentrate. Self-directed play leads to self-harmony, which leads to a higher ability to learn and retain knowledge.
