Play And Learning

Savine With Ate Mylene
Penelope Leach  is a British psychologist who writes extensively on parenting issues from a child development perspective. She once said, "For a small child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does 'just for fun' and things that are 'educational.' The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play."

"Learning through play" is a term used in education and psychology. It describes how children use play to learn the world around them. Children through play can cultivate various skills like cognitive, social and behavioral. They can also gain self-confidence needed to engage in new experiences and environments.

Here is a video of my son, Zach playing and enjoying the slide.
