Did you know that Winfree Preschool is a play based school?   What is the play based curriculum?

Using Play-Based Curriculum to Support Children's Learning throughout the Domains. ... Intuitively all early childhood teachers know that play is an integral part of young children's lives, and that being able to play, both alone and with others, is a hallmark of children's healthy development.

a play-based program, children choose activities based on their current interests. The term "play-based” is often interchanged with "child-centered,” which could be used to describe the majority of available preschool programs. ... Teachers encourage the kids to play, facilitating social skills along the way. Toys are fun, but toys are also tools that help children learn about themselves and the world around them. Play is critical to the healthy growth and development of children. As children play, they learn to solve problems, to get along with others and to develop the fine and gross motor skills needed to grow and learn.

Play is an important part of healthy emotional development. Children use play to release emotions, work through feelings, and understand their world better by play-acting in situations they can control.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children, play is serious learning.  At various times, play is a way to cope with life and prepare for adulthood.  Playing is a way to solve problems and to express feelings.  In fact, play is the work of childhood.”  ~Fred Rogers
