At CADI we believe in playing as a powerful tool for education. Play-based learning is an educational approach that centers around the use of play to promote children’s development and learning. It recognizes that play is a natural and vital way for children to explore, understand, and make sense of the world around them. In this approach, activities and materials are designed to be engaging, hands-on, and enjoyable, fostering a child’s curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving abilities.
The great thing about playing is that it supports various domains of development, including cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills while encouraging independent thinking, collaboration, and self-expression. At our school, teachers act as facilitators, observing and guiding children’s play to extend their learning experiences.
It’s important to note that while play-based learning is often associated with early childhood education, it can be applied across various age groups and settings. The approach adapts to the developmental stage and interests of the learners, making it a flexible and effective teaching method.
