Fridays are a big deal around here in the Summer because that is our official water play day! It is the most popular activity we do in the summer. The children absolutely love it and they are learning as they go!
Water play fosters learning in all developmental areas. It provides opportunities for children to experiment with math and science concepts, strengthen their physical skills, advance their social and emotional skills, and enhance language development (Crosser, 1994; Hendrick, 1996).
