Supporting creativity and imagination by learning through play in the early years is crucial for young children’s development. By providing children with opportunities to engage in imaginative play, explore their surroundings, and make their own decisions, they can develop their critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, which are essential skills for life.
