While often dismissed as “just fun,” play is a vital activity that young children use to learn about and interact with the world around them. According to the science of brain development, children who play gain the mental, physical, and social skills needed to succeed as adults.

The first 5 years of life are vital for the development of a child's brain. Early experiences have a direct impact on how a child learns, and how social and emotional abilities are acquired. Young children learn faster during these years than at any other stage in their lives.
As young children explore, they learn. But this must occur in safe and stimulating environments that promote development. The very definition of exploration is to travel through the unknown to discover something new. By exploring, a child learns to be more resilient and creative.
A high-quality early learning program prepares children to make positive transitions to kindergarten, as well as improve their health and life outcomes. If parents and educators get it right in the early years, young children will have a better chance to thrive as adults.
