When I first began this blog to document our activities “in lieu of preschool” (there’s a great blog by that name, by the way), I thought of the words that would capture the essence of what my husband and I wish to provide for our children. I came up with the following: love, wonder, magic, imagination, exploration, discovery, and lastly, the phrase “joyful learning.”
People often wonder how to make learning joyful for children. The answer is really very simple – PLAY. The phrase “play is the work of childhood,” attributed to renowned developmental psychologist Jean Piaget, captures what childhood is about. Children wake up in the morning ready to play, it is the language that they understand, it is something that they do naturally. It is through play that they explore and learn about the world.
The idea that learning should be joyful is close to my heart. It is something that I believe in, encourage in my children, and actively advocate through the parenting seminars that The Learning Basket holds around Metro Manila. Ever the learner myself, I am excited to be a partner and participant of an event that promotes joyful learning.
