“Play is learning….In the short and long term, play benefits cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Children learn cognitive skills such as creativity, problem solving, divergent thinking, mathematics, and language. They learn to negotiate social relationships, regulate their emotions, and control their own behaviors. When play is fun and child-directed, children are motivated to engage in opportunities to learn.” - The Power of Play: A Research Summary on Play and Learning, written by Dr. Rachel E. White from the Institute of Child Development at University of Minnesota
