Play Based Curriculum

What is a Play Based Curriculum

There are many ways to educate a very young child, but one of the most popular ones that are used in many day cares is known as a play based curriculum. As its name suggests, a play based curriculum consists of one where children play all the time, but play with items and do activities that also teaches them things in a similar way they would learn in a more formal education environment.


This is becoming more and more popular as better results are seen for children when it comes to learning through play, as it is a more organic and natural way to learn the basics about life and the world in general. Sitting a toddler down to pay attention is more or less impossible, but introducing lessons through playing with specific types of toys, blocks and puzzles as well as playing with others will teach volumes to these young minds.
