Thank you, Old School Square, for partnering with us to promote Play!
Why a Play Initiative? Research shows that child-directed play is a crucial element in the healthy development of social-emotional skills, physical skills and mental wellbeing. Play is a building block of academic success and a joyful childhood. All children should have the opportunity for this type of play every day.
