Learn At Home Ideas

Children learn through play.

Learning never really stops. Everything that goes on around us, everything we hear, see, touch, smell, and taste, results in learning of some kind.

Learning doesn’t bow to deadlines or fall in line with anyone’s schedule or expectations. Through free, undirected play, children develop effective communication and social skills, they build cognitive and critical thinking, and they grow in confidence and creativity.

We want to help you and your children thrive during this time at home.

As the parent, provide resources, create the atmosphere, and be available. Don’t try to micromanage or control the play happening, but empower them, encourage them, and stand back and observe. It really is an incredible thing to watch children at play.
