Play is a natural part of childhood and is inherently human. Play is an important way for children to acquire new knowledge and skills from birth. Play can take on many forms. When children play, they learn to socialize, develop early foundations and concepts in math, science, geography, the universe, virtually all aspects of existence. The brain thrives on experiences that establish new neural connections and pathways and play is a perfect way to provide these experiences for infants and young children. Particularly as play influences and advances exploration, thinking, problem solving, and language expression. Changing school performance, exam results and outcomes of education do not start with the textbook ��� it starts with the foundations that are laid and sustained through play from the start.
