We all know that play is vital to a child’s development. We also know that today’s busy family schedules, stress on academics and electronics are cutting into valuable free play time. While we all want our children to succeed academically, the simple of act of free play is what your child’s growing brain and body really needs to set a solid foundation for their academic, emotional and physical success. The Early Learning Coalition’s Day of Play is a great way to unwind from the daily grind and simply…play!
