Play-based learning involves and develops from activities that children organize and explore to make sense of the world around them and understand their social worlds as they engage actively with people, objects and representations.
Children’s learning through play and the EYLF (Early Years Learning Framework) covers all aspects of children’s development. Children develop language skills, their emotions and creativity and intellectual skills. Learning through fun and play is important in a child’s development because:
- Allows development of a strong sense of identity and personality
- Connection and understanding and creativity to their world
- Develops a strong sense of well-being
- Builds confidence in developing new relationships and concepts
- Allows expression and communications
Educator’s programs and involvement with our children, families and our community will encourage and support continual development of children’s education and skills.
Management and Educators will continue to put into practice programs that cover all areas of developing skills to enhance all sensory elements, functionality, communicating and well-being that achieves “Belonging, Being and Becoming”.
