Play Every Day program empowers caregivers to guide children in learning through play

New Delhi, May 29 (UNI) Aimed at shedding light on how parent-child play is linked with boosting creativity, learning and development of children aged 3-8 years, a conference was organised here on Wednesday by Sesame Workshop India Trust and The LEGO Foundation to mark the celebration of the World Play Day.
The play conference not only showcased how caregivers were empowered to leverage play in support of children’s early development and lifelong learning, but also the best practices to promote play as part of the daily lives of children and caregivers.
Sesame Workshop implemented Play Every Day, a program designed to help vulnerable communities in India, South Africa and Mexico to challenge caregiver misperceptions such as ''play is a waste of time'' and ''kids need expensive toys to play to boost their creativity'', and to establish that ''guided play
leads to improved child’s learning and development''.
The intervention was implemented in India across 9 communities of Delhi with support from The LEGO Foundation.
The conference was addressed by Ms Mythili Bector, OSD, Primary School Education, Directorate of Education, Delhi Government, Diego Adame, Initiatives Lead, Learning through Play in Early Childhood, The LEGO Foundation and Sonali Khan, Managing Director at Sesame Workshop India.
