    Hey Yashy! I actually really struggled with play based learning and while over the last few months I have seen big positive changes in my 4 yr old (she is full day JK) I think I would not be as happy w her school as I am if the teachers were still not doing some ‘traditional’ learning. They still have things like math circles and word boards etc so while I feel on some days that I am drowning in pictures of princesses and hearts on others I see things like improved penmanship or a manifestation of basic math skills. (I can feel play based learning fans glowering at me as I write this…) 🙂

      So glad to know that it’s working out for you guys. I’m sure it’s going to be great once she starts full day JK because the school we’ve found offers a good combo too!

    This is interesting to me. I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old and I definitely believe in play based learning. But I would much rather they did that kind of learning at home, rather than day care or preschool.
    I would love to hear how your daughter gets along with liking people. One of mine has the same struggle and I’m wondering if I should push it, or wait and coach her along little by little.

      She loves her friends at school and seems to like the teachers so I’m guessing the people issue is softening ever so slowly. I hope so any ways! I honestly think the reason she likes going to school is the fact that she gets to ‘play-learn’. She’s definitely picking up things at school and even knows how to write the alphabet (few letters) so I’m definitely coming to realize that our school has a good play based learning curriculum in place. Let me know how your little one gets along!

    I think it works well when the kids learn through play
