Play is a universal phenomenon and a right of childhood. It is a spontaneous, rewarding and fun with several benefits:

  • Education: helps children learn and build skills that lay the foundation for learning to read, write and do math.
  • Social skills: provides opportunities to socialize with peers of the same age, and to learn to understand others, to communicate and to negotiate.
  • Cognition: encourages children to learn, imagine, categorize and problem solve.
  • Therapeutic benefits: Gives children the opportunity to express troubling aspects of their daily life, including stresses, trauma, family conflicts and other dilemmas.
