What is 'play-based learning'?

Friendly Faces programming is built around play-based learning. It allows young children to make sense of their world through exploration, developing and practising language and physical skills and experimenting with new ideas. Children build confidence, express themselves creatively, and develop their sense of self and identity. Besides individual exploration, they also learn co-operation and how to interact as part of a group.
You'll see play-based learning in solitary and group play activities, indoors and outdoors. Activities range from building spatial awareness with playdough or blocks, to honing fine motor skills and knowledge of colours and shapes with drawing and painting.
