For many years, early childhood researchers have studied the role of play in the growth and development of children. They have found that 'constructive play', like food, love, care, and hope, is an essential building block for children - a critical part of the foundation children need to lead healthy, happy, and productive lives.
Experts agree that constructive play:
Is safe, wholesome, and non-violent
Stimulates children to develop skills and positive relationships
Inspires children to learn more about themselves and the world around them
Enables children to fully realize their potential
Encourages creativity and helps develop a child's personality
