Learning through Play- Is Most Beneficial

by Nitin Saini Digital Marketing Expert

Do you remember the childhood times when you played grocery store or compass games or rocket to the moon game? These are known as the pretend-plays that we used to cherish as children. We learned some of the most brilliant life lessons during those times, without even realizing that we are learning something out of it. Senior teachers in many Nursery schools in Delhi today say that there are stages that a child goes through during these pretend plays. While 2 years old pretend to feed the dolls and put them to sleep, the 5-year-olds come-up with a more elaborate setting for pretend-play. Teachers say that the development and learning that children go through while playing helps a lot in times of nursery schools admissions in Delhi or other metropolitan cities, where nursery school admissions are not a cakewalk!!

Let us find out few of the benefits described by senior teachers in nursery schools in Delhi emphasize on:

  1. Communication skills


Needless, to say that play encourages children to develop language skills and auditory skills. Play enhances communication skills of the children. Children when they talk to each other or even when they play a solitary game, where they are needed to narrate and talk to self or to a companion; it adds purpose to the play with communication. They develop interpersonal skills and enhance one’s vocabulary in the process, explain one of the veteran teachers in one of the top schools in Delhi. Good vocabulary, communication skills, and interpersonal skills are few skills that are mandatory and comes handy in the nursery school admission in Delhi and other metropolitan cities these days, described principals of few popular schools.


  1. Cognitive development


Children who indulge in pretend play have more developed levels of interactions and thinking capability and are more creative. It’s a boon for child’s cognitive development. They have better chances to perform well in nursery schools admissions in Delhi, advice principal of one of the best Nursery schools in Delhi. There have been researches which show that there are connections between cognitive ability and complex pretend play. Quite conversely, there are chances of children facing issues related to social skills, academic domains and problem-solving, who are devoid of optimum playtime.


  1.  Trust building


They develop social skills and develop their trust factor when they play actively in teams where each member of the team is dependent on the other for winning. This is how we develop peer support and trust building. They also learn to take responsibility for others. This is where the quality of friendships and language development can be seen, according to Mrs. Iyer, one of the senior nursery schools teachers in Presidium, Delhi.

There are many benefits of playing for a child’s overall development than the above-mentioned. In initial years, to make learning interesting, duration of playtime was more in the curriculum than direct class sessions. Make sure your child plays a lot and interact more with peers. All the best!
