Because playtime is essential to early childhood development and literacy…
What is Play, Learn, Grow?
Build things up, knock them down, create artistic masterpieces, and just have fun! Did you know that the playtime you had as a child may have benefitted you in ways you may have never imagined? When kids are given the chance to play amongst themselves and with others, they are learning the fine motor skills, social skills, and early STEM skills that will help them be successful in school.
In York County Libraries, we strive to make every experience a chance to learn and grow. Play, Learn, Grow centers around the idea of learning through play. Through various resources in the library such as blocks, toys, games and interaction with others, children are learning creativity and expression, while also growing as individuals.
