Do children learn through play? As experienced educators we at Gamut believe that play is a central pathway for learning. In an era of high stakes testing and excessive focus on achievement, playful learning can be a counterintuitive proposal to embrace, but one that can bring rich rewards. While many educational policies focus on efficient coverage of content, we at Gamut would argue that genuinely interesting content combined with enjoyment, exploration, and choice can effectively support learning. There are many aspects of a school’s culture such as experiences, rituals, tools and spaces that can be developed to promote learning through play. Let us show you how learning through play stimulates intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.
