Classroom Integration


Play-based learning in early childhood education is grounded in the belief that children learn best when they actively engage with their environment and peers through play. This theory is founded on the works of prominent educators like Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, who emphasized the role of play in cognitive and social development. Play-based learning recognizes that play allows children to explore, experiment, problem-solve, and develop essential skills while fostering creativity, independence, and a love for learning, making it a holistic and developmentally appropriate approach to early childhood education.

Play Based  Learning
