Play is a tool that kids use to learn about the world around them. It assists in every stage of a child's development, from teaching social skills and strengthening physical abilities to inspiring imagination and helping to manage emotions.
It is through play that kids begin to acquire the skills needed to become successful adults.
The Play & Learn Center offers ideas for fostering active and imaginative play. Learn what age-appropriate activities will get your kids moving and which toys are not only the safest, but the "smartest" at every stage, from babies to big kids.
The center was created in affiliation with the Children's Hospital Association (CHA).
