Children’s Museum (Annual Report)
Play = Learning
When you hear the word “play,” you probably think
fun, amusement, recreation. But despite the word’s long-held connotation, decades of research have proven that children’s free play has a powerful influence on their intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.
That’s right, when children pretend, build, climb
and explore, they’re not only having fun, they are
also developing life skills and coming to understand themselves and the world around them.
