The importance of learning through play can't be overstated. In fact way back in the first century Plato (the Greek philosopher) believed "you can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation". We at Creative Classrooms see play as being critical to a child's social, physical, intellectual and emotional development and well being. That's why we have a great range of teaching supplies for early childhood learning centres, kindergartens and playcentres. Active play sets the scene for adulthood by providing a platform of skills and knowledge that can be drawn upon in order to successfully negotiate life's thoroughfares.
Children have need for physical exercise and activity especially essential for gross motor development. As a result toys for outdoor play tend to be larger and require plenty of room for manoeuvring that is not generally available indoors. Most playgrounds are well equipped with suitable fixtures. Sandpits, water troughs, cycling and throwing are all outdoor play activities that kids adore. Apart from which there is still a need for daily sunlight exposure and fresh air which is invigorating.
