Welcome to the Education-Games-For-Kids.com website. Throughout this site we look at education games for children and discover what they can do for our children's learning development.
While it is widely recognized that learning through play is an effective way for a child to develop, it is only in recent years that educators have really come to understand the importance of play in education.
In a recent report called The Early Years Study, Margaret Norrie McCain and J. Fraser Mustard had this to say about play and it's value in education....
"Play contributes to brain development. Evidence from neuroscience shows that the early years of a child's development from birth to age six, set the base for learning, behaviour, and health throughout life."
In fact, play is so important that the United Nations has recognized it as a specific right for all children!
If education games and toys are such an important part of learning for our children, it does beg the question...
Are they playing with education games and toys that make the most of learning opportunities, and if not, what could we give to our children to help them to develop certain areas of their education.
It has long been acknowledged that there is a strong link between play and learning for young children, especially in the areas of problem solving, language acquisition, literacy, numeracy, and social, physical, and emotional skills. Young children actively explore their environment and the world around them through a process of learning-based play.
