Discover the Joy of Learning
Day after amazing day, all the fun-field things they do and discover are the very things that help children learn. Rediscover the power of play. Discover the Joy of Learning. →
Begin exploring below:
Building busy little bodies
Mastering physical skills is such an important part of childhood-and it paves the way to all kinds of learning.
Hearing, seeing, touching, tasting—the senses are the very first windows to helping your child learn, “lighting up” areas of the brain.
From grasping a toy to holding a pencil, developing fine motor skills helps lead to success in school and beyond.
Huge physical milestones occur in the early years—and motor skills keep getting refined as your child grows.
Sitting up, walking, running—they’ll use a LOT of energy building these skills.
Engaging curious minds
The best way to learn? Through play. You'll be astounded at how much brain power they build in the early years.
Encouraging that natural sense of wonder and amazement will help your child want to learn more—every day!
Asking “what if?” Dreaming up new ways to see the world. Being able to imagine and create. They’re hallmarks of great thinkers.
How does it work? Figuring things out is one of the best parts of play—from simple challenges to more complex ones.
From ABCs to actual reading, from reciting numbers to counting things, the early years of play set the foundation for success in school and beyond.
Social & Emotional
Nurturing confident personalities
Expressing ideas, sharing with friends, being a good listener ... playing is a natural (and fun!) way to develop good social skills and enhance emotional well-being.
Taking turns and getting along with others takes time and practice, but doing that while playing makes it easier and more fun!
A child can hear even before birth—and will always benefit from being a good listener (and talker!).
Feeling good about yourself and letting others know your thoughts are essential skills that develop naturally through play.
Playful children are happy children. When all is said and done, you want your child to have emotional connections, to feel happy and secure—now, and when they’re all grown up!
