We Play To Learn!
At Creative Journeys Child Care Learning Center (CJLC). Constructive play stimulates the imagination – encouraging creative problem solving and providing opportunities for accomplishments that help children develop confidence, self-esteem, a sense of their own strengths and weaknesses, and a positive attitude toward learning. Through CONSTRUCTIVE PLAY, children expand their intelligence – their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Play is a testing ground for language and reasoning skills – a laboratory for learning to connect to challenges children face in school, such as literacy, math, and science concepts. We support learning in a constructive play-based and developmentally-appropriate environment that incorporates a variety of activities and multicultural aspects in a thematic style.
From birth to adolescence, constructive play is vital to most aspects of children’s intellectual, emotional, social, language, and physical development. Consequently, play prepares children for academic learning – as they begin their school years and at each step along the way. Ultimately, play prepares children for rewarding adult lives.
