Play is a big part of our program it’s also the heart of it. Play is very important for children. Through play young children explore and learn to understand the world around them as they come to communicate,discover,imagine and create. When children play they are showing what they have learned and what they are trying to understand.This is why play is one of the foundation of Child's Play framework. A play-based program does not mean that children just do what they like all day. In a play-based program there will be times when children come together as a group,listen when others are talking,follow the rules of group living and begin to take responsibility for their actions and their environment. I also believe that learning should be a fun and exciting experience for all children. Our daily outline is flexible, relaxing, and non-intimidating. Each child is given a chance to develop at his or own pace.

Young children need routines in their lives to help them feel secure. This will also help them to understand what to expect next.
