Children learn through play: they play to learn social skills, play to prepare to read, play to learn about roles in society, play to learn about the arts, play to exercise. Because children learn through play, the Creative Play Place is designed to encourage children to explore movement and the arts through creative play. Children climb, slide and run to exercise their body, while playing in imaginative sets. Children learn theatrical arts through costuming, dramatic play and puppetry, visual arts through hands-on, process-oriented art experiences, music and dance through instrument experimentation and movement. Children learn social skills as they negotiate and share. The Creative Play Place provides parents with a variety of opportunities to play with their children to help them learn and grow. Come play with us!
