Yesterday was such a fun and educational day! 🚒👩‍🚒
Life Safety Educational Specialists, from the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, presented a Fire Safety puppet show to our PreK and Preschool students. Then we had a visit from our local firefighters who taught us all about their engine!
Thank you!

Did you know that play can be categorized by the way children interact with their peers? There are 6 stages of play that most children progress through. Stages 1 and 2 we were covered in our last post and now we will talk about stages 3-6.
Stage 3 - Onlooker Play: At this stage, (2 years old) children often want to sit back and watch other children play and do not display any interest or make any effort to join in. it’s easy to think that those engaged in onlooker play might be lonely or scared to engage with other children, when in fact it is a very normal part of play development.
Stage 4 - Parallel Play: When children play alongside others but doing separate activities or playing with different toys. There is no social exchange.
Stage 5 - Associative Play: (3-4 years) children will begin to practice the skills they have learned during the previous steps. They will engage with their peers and part take in the same activity but will take turns or work on their own project. An example would be 2 children playing with Legos alongside each other, but each building a different set.
Stage 6 - Cooperative mPlay: Children 4 years and older are in this stage. They are interested both in playing with others and working together towards a goal. The play is organized and involves cooperative efforts. Ironically, cooperative play often involves a lot of conflict. This is normal. It is sometimes difficult for young children to share, take turns and negotiate control in these types of play scenarios. You can support children engaged in cooperative play by staying close and helping them learn healthy expression of emotions and teach them problem solving skills.
Create opportunities for your child to explore, but always remember that each child develops at their or her own pace, so children of the same age may not show exactly the same types of play.

THE POWER OF PLAY - part 1
Most people know that play time is an incredibly important part of a child’s healthy development. But did you know that play can be categorized by the way children interact with their peers? There are six well known stages of play that most children progress through.
The first stage happens between 0-3 months and it is classified as unoccupied play; during that stage they discover how their bodies move, and they learn how to manipulate objects.
Stage 2 is called Solitary Play, it is most common with children under 3, and just how it sounds, this type of play occurs when they entertain themselves without any other social involvement. They are focused on their own activity and are not interested (or even aware) of what others are doing nearby. Parents should encourage solitary play as often as possible, seeing that when children engage in that type of play, they are able to explore freely, master new skills (personal, motor and cognitive) and prepare themselves to play with others.

Little ones love to explore, and it is very important to offer them hands-on activities that stimulate their senses. Observing, trying new experiences, and manipulating new materials all work together to expand the thought processes of children, and that is why sensory play time is an important part of their day here at Rising Stars Day School. Besides helping with brain development, sensory play is super fun and it is sure to keep the little ones entertained for long periods of time.

“Children learn as they play. More importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.” O. Fred Donald. Play is very important to healthy brain development, as it allows children to use their imagination and creativity, while developing dexterity, cognitive and emotional strength.
