Heuristic Play within Akoranga Preschool

Heuristic play or discovery play refers to the way children personally select and handle objects in order to construct their own understanding.

Through heuristic play, children are satisfying their natural need to explore. It gives children the opportunity to decide for themselves what they want to play with. By looking, touching, sucking, licking, banging, picking up and dropping, children begin to collect information that will later lead to identification and naming of objects.
Providing children with interesting and stimulating sensory play experiences will help the connections in the child’s brain that leads to healthy cognitive development. The predominant interest is “What can I do with this?”
