Learning Through Play


Play is a child’s natural way of exploring the world we live in. Developmentally, play covers all aspects of learning – physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
Play provides learning opportunities that are multi-sensory, interactive, creative and imaginative. Through play, children are not only learning about the activity or working towards an outcome, they are engaging with each other, negotiating, sorting out arguments and establishing friendships.
They imagine, explore and invent. It is through taking risks, discovering new ideas and putting these ideas into action that learning takes place.


Learning through Play at Dargaville Primary is:

·     Led by the child

·     About the process, not the product

·     Imaginative

·     Creative

·     About working together

·     Building upon what the child already knows and their experiences
