Why learn through play?
UNICEF states that “play is one of the most important ways in which young children gain essential knowledge and skills”. This is particularly important during the Early Years/ EYFS stage where play is one of the main ways children learn, particularly while with their peers.
The benefits of learning through play does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - play encourages creativity, enhances fine motor skills, increases attention span, nurtures imagination and helps to make sense of the world.
