The centre approachLearning Through Play
  • Young children actively explore their
    environment and the world around them through a
    process of learning-based play Play is a vehicle
    for learningPlay and work are not distinct
    categories for young childrenthere is a strong
    link between play and learningPlay, therefore,
    has a legitimate and important role in
    Kindergarten
  • (page 14, The Kindergarten Program, 2006, Ontario
    Ministry of Education)

The centre approachLearning Through Play
  • Current brain research confirms that
    opportunities for children to learn through play
    impel the development of multiple-sensing
    pathways in the brain.
