Children learn through play

Children have natural-born skills and capabilities that enable them to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners. To fully flourish, these skills need to be nurtured, supported and developed as children grow.

Creative Skills

Coming up with ideas, expressing them and transforming them into reality by creating associations, symbolizing and representing ideas and providing meaningful experiences for others.

Physical skills

Being physically active, understanding movement and space through practicing sensory-motor skills. Spatial understanding and nurturing an active and healthy body.

Social skills

Collaborate, communicate and understand other people’s perspectives through sharing ideas, negotiating rules and building empathy.

Cognitive skills

Concentration, problem solving and flexible thinking by learning to tackle complex tasks and building effective strategies to identify solutions.

Emotional skills

Understand, manage and express emotions by building self-awareness and handling impulses. Staying motivated and confident in the face of difficulties.

Characteristics of playful experiences

The five characteristics of play in this video draw on extensive conversations with experts in the field, as well as reviews of the literature on play and learning. We do not view them as providing any formal definition of play, but they do help unfold how playful experiences lead to deeper learning.
