MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE that play is important in the development of a child, but at St. Thomas’s Day School, that principle is put into action every day. Play-based learning has been at the center of the School’s philosophy since it opened over 60 years ago, and it’s not just because it’s fun (although it is!). What students discover on the playground is just as important as what they learn in the classroom. Skills in conflict resolution, relationship building, empathy and inclusivity are all built at playtime. With two new playgrounds currently under construction to be opened this fall, the meaningful play that already occurs at St. T’s will be enhanced even further..
