The Importance of Play

At Macquarie Hills Community Preschool we value play as an essential part of every child’s development. It is through play that children are able to make sense of their world and develop their own belonging, being, becoming.

Play provides opportunities for children to learn, discover, create, improvise and imagine. This immersion in play illustrates how children simply enjoy being. Play is visible in everything we do. Childhood is a time to seek and make meaning of the world.
