Water play provides children with experiences to help develop their creativity and imagination skills. At Macquarie Hills Community Preschool we value this idea as it builds the foundation for understanding various scientific concepts. It allows the children to use their imagination and add different aspects in order to demonstrate capacity by filling, emptying and transporting the water.
It also helps increase children’s ability to concentrate on one activity when presented as a tranquil and repetitive activity. Gentle water play allows them to unwind, order their thoughts and relax.
