Why Play-based Learning
Play is an integral part of development. Through play, children build and develop essential skills that are crucial to their academic growth in later years. Play encourages children to inquire, explore, create and solve problems in imaginative ways. Through child-initiated and adult-led play, children build confidence to tackle obstacles and solve a wide range of problems with growing independence.

This period allows children to explore creatively, build problem solving skills and learn to interact with their peers and the environment. Children are encouraged to explore their potential and nurture their imagination to become critical thinkers and problem solvers.
