Leading research has concluded that play-based learning is positively helpful for the child’s learning and development ability. Children learn best when at least one of the following key aspects are present;

1. Children take an active role in the learning environment
2. Children are engaged
3. Information the children engage in is meaningful
4. The children interact in a social context while learning

This means that children learn well when they are mentally active, engaged and are able to make meaningful connections to their lives. These are also the characteristics of play.

A play-based curriculum has a positive influence on developing grammar because play activates the brain which then advances memorisation which traditional classroom teaching techniques do not. Engaging in play also activates parts of the brain which help with developing connections that lead to a positive development for the child.

Beyond stimulating young minds to be receptive to learning, play is a necessary component of brain development for all children in general and an important source of fun and socialisation.

Intellectual, physical, and social-emotional abilities emerge and are strengthened through play according to Katie Chiavarone, the author of The Undeniable Power of Play. She states “It is in the context of play that children test out new knowledge and theories. Children reenact experiences to solidify understanding and it is how children first learn and express symbolic thought.
