Language Play

As children play with language, they learn to express themselves with words, rather than actions only. They are made aware of the reasons we use language and how to appropriately communicate their thoughts and feelings.

Physical Play

Music & Dance Play

Play and music are important for the development of children’s mental capacity and intellect, helping to build language and mathematical skills. Children love to move and dance. It helps children to be active and exercise their bodies.
