PLAY WITH ME! - Play equals Learning
A child who is playing is learning to experience a new world. Playing fosters a child's separate identity from their parents. It can be observed in many forms: building with blocks, making believe, exploring the outdoors, and developing fine motor skills. When there's play, there's wonderful growth and activity in the brain.
