Playing is learning too!

The Importance of Play in Developing Children's Learning at Rendcomb College.

Play is essential for children's learning and development. It helps them to explore their surroundings, learn new skills, and develop their creativity. At Rendcomb College, we believe that play is a vital part of the learning process.

Here are some of the ways that play helps children learn:

  1. Cognitive development:
    Play helps children to develop their problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, and creativity. When children play, they are constantly faced with challenges that they need to overcome. This helps them to learn how to think critically and solve problems.
  2. Physical development:
    Play helps children to develop their gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and coordination. When children play, they are moving their bodies and using their muscles. This helps them to develop their physical strength and coordination.
  3. Social and emotional development:
    Play helps children to develop their social skills, emotional intelligence, and self-regulation. When children play, they are interacting with other children and learning how to cooperate, share, and resolve conflicts. They are also learning how to manage their emotions and cope with stress.
