Learning through Play
A primary educational goal of Esme & Roy is to model how children best learn through play and to foster a range of play patterns using everyday objects and learning across content areas. When children play, they are:
• Motivated by their own interests
• Cognitively, physically and socially engaged
• Curious and try new things!
As play guides, Esme & Roy set up different type of play to solve problems and help the little monsters learn a range of lessons while extending their interest through play!
Join us for Esme & Roy Saturday and Sunday at 10:30am on the 24/7 WITF-PBS Kids Channel.
