Children Learn Through Play
When a child is engrossed in play, whether it is free play, guided play, adventure play or social play, they learn about themselves and the world around them. By engaging with their environment, their peers and their teachers, children will develop social and cognitive skills, become emotionally mature, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences. At Mount Kelly International Preschool there is not a choice between ‘Play’ and ‘Academics’. Play is the foundation of intellectual development and the catalyst for solid academic achievement.
