When a child learns by having fun, they’re often heavily involved in the activity. They might be completing activities with their hands or getting up and moving around. They might be looking, touching or discovering in another way that gets them involved. This involvement helps kids learn firsthand. In many cases, this firsthand involvement leads to lasting memories of the material being presented.
When learning is fun, the child learns to love learning. It’s very important that parents teach kids to love learning early by singing, dancing and playing educational games with them. Parents should encourage children to participate in groups that foster a love for learning in children. Learning is one of those activities that a person does throughout life, so it’s important to show, not teach, a child how much fun it is.
At Snugglepot Kindyland we encourage children to learn through play while having fun and to develop important life skills by working together with other children.
