childhood developmentWhy Childhood Playtime is Vitally Important

Childhood Playtime, fun time, free time, or whatever you choose to name it in your family is crucial to the development of your child’s behaviors and personality.  Playtime encourages creativity and imagination in each child. It also aids in the increased development of the brain that processes their environment by helping them work out solutions to problems, reenact things they’ve observed and learned, make sense of their small but ever-growing world, and most importantly the ability to play out their thoughts and emotions.
