Learning through Play

learn-through-playChildren at Ranches Nursery are encouraged to learn holistically through play. Through play children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.

The importance of self-initiated play, particularly for young children means that we need to give them open-ended toys, like blocks, sensory materials and real-life objects (heuristic play) to create their own learning experiences.

Such learning provides the foundation for the more academic learning at Ranches Primary.
