Children attend play home to learn to communicate, play, and interact with others appropriately. A teacher provides various materials and activities to motivate these children to learn the language and vocabulary of reading, mathematics, and science, as well as that of music, art, and social behaviors. For children who previously have spent most of their time at home, play home may serve the purpose of helping them adjust to being apart from their parents without anxiety. It may be their first opportunity to play and interact with a consistent group of children on a regular basis. Play home may also allow mothers, fathers, or other caregivers to go back to part-time or full-time employment.
The main objective of play home school is:
- To develop a good physique, adequate muscular coordination and basic motor skill in the child.
- To develop good health habits and to build up basic skills necessary for personal adjustments such as dressing themselves, toilet and eating habits.
- To develop emotional maturity by guiding the child to express, understand, accept and control his feelings and emotions.
- To develop good desirable social attitudes, manners and to encourage healthy group participation.
- To encourage aesthetic appreciation (art, music, beauty, etc.)
- To stimulate the child’s beginning of intellectual curiosities concerning his immediate environment.
- To encourage the child’s independence and creativity by providing him with sufficient opportunities.
“The school is an opportunity for the progress of the student. Each one is having the freedom to develop freely.”
