Learning Through Play


Recommended Posts



We're looking for a quote to explain to parents what 'learning through play' means. Can anybody point me in the right direction?


Whilst fully endorsing the principle, personally I do not like the expression as I feel parents interpret it as - children are just playing.


Whereas, we know that children learn best through play supported by caring and sensitive adults who extend their learning.


Thanks in advance.

LIKE THIS “Play is the beginning of knowledge.”


OR Joseph Chilton Pearce quotes “Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.”


OR “It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.”

Leo F. Buscaglia quotes (American guru, tireless advocate of the power of love, 1924-1998)


OR “If animals play, this is because play is useful in the struggle for survival; because play practices and so perfects the skills needed in adult life”

Susanna Miller quotes




There are many more to choose from.
