On November 20th 2017, all Kindergarten teachers participated in bringing joy and purposeful play to our classrooms. Kimberly Stewart and Dr. Sherry Rose shared igniting opportunities for reinforcing the tremendous value of children’s play. Children are designed to play! Play helps develop social skills, memory, emotional awareness, and creative problem - solving. Play isn’t a luxury! It’s a Necessity!

As adults and children, play has an essential role in fueling our happiness and intelligence throughout our lives and it is essential to our health as sleep and food. Let’s Play!
