HKC After School Care is a play-based program.
What exactly is play-based learning?
Play-based learning is based on child-led and open-ended play.
Activities like finger painting or ‘playing house', are exploring much more than just playing. It is a way to test the world around them in fun imaginative ways.
Play itself is a voluntary, enjoyable activity with no purpose or end goal. Activities like this lay the foundation for a child to become a curious and excited learner later in life.
Play-based learning helps children develop social skills, motivation to learn, and even language and numeracy skills. Taking initiative, focused attention, and curiosity about the world are all a part of play.
