PLAY AND LEARN
KIDS PLAY AND LEARN
Playing is vital to the healthy growth and development of young children.
Through play, children learn to resolve problems, develop thinking and reasoning skills, socialize with others and develop the gross and fine motor skills needed to grow and learn (source)
We collaborate closely with Teachers and an Early Childhood Learning Expert in the design and development of our games.
INSPIRED BY JEAN PIAGET
The world-renowned Swiss Educational thought leader Jean Piaget (1896-1980) placed children 2-7 years old in the pre-operational stage of cognitive development.
Piaget asserted that at this age children increase their amount of playing and pretending, including symbolic play, role-playing and creating imaginary friends.
In Highlights Monster Day, kids play and learn by looking after a monster brushing his teeth and taking him to school. This encourages kids to play the role of care-giver and invent dialog with their imaginary new friend.
