Early childhood classrooms are a place for young children to learn, grow, build friendships and have fun. One way that children can do all of these things at once is through play. It is through play that children can learn about themselves, and their environment, as well as academic skills, such as math, science, reading, writing, and social studies. It is up to the teachers and other educators to set up the learning environment so that it is welcoming for the children to interact with one another while inquiring about the materials they are given. Through this process of hands-on play based learning, children can develop the skills necessary to succeed in school and their everyday lives if given the opportunities to explore. Social interaction between children increases during constructive play.
