A child’s occupation is play
Believe it or not, children have a job to do: develop the foundation they need to live as healthy and independently as possible as adults. At Play Works, we believe children and teens learn these essential occupations of everyday living through play.
When children play they develop social awareness, shared imagination, increased confidence, improved fitness, and increased flexibility. These skills, in turn, help them build a solid foundation for success for the rest of their lives.
