Respected play authorities pen 'Words On Play' to raise awareness on value of play

Albert Einstein once said, “play is the highest form of research.”

It seems the great physicist/philosopher was correct. Research shows that the simple act of playing offers numerous benefits for children, families and communities alike. Children are at their highest level of development when they are playing; making play an essential part of their growth and overall happiness.

Knowing how critical play is for healthy physical, social, emotional and intellectual development, PlayCore, whose mission is to advance play through research, programs and partnerships, is promoting the value of play through the Words On Play Guidebook.
