"In DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL MATHURA a playground provides a non-prescriptive environment where children can play and develop skills at their own paceâ€ť
Playing outdoors is a vital part of childhood that helps children develop physical strength, coordination, a feeling of sportsmanship, team spirit, self discipline, balance, focus, management and fostering the skills of group dynamics . It provides opportunities to children to learn and develop the various skills :
Social Skills - Children learn to communicate, share, collaborate and empathise with others
Imagination and creativity - outdoors play is often open-ended and children need to be creative about what and how games are played
Sense of self - as they master new skills and play with other children they improve their competence and confidence in their own physical and social abilities
Sense of connection - a sense of connection to place, to peers and to their local community and environment
Self care skills - managing physical and social challenges help children to learn about keeping themselves safe
To support these broad learning outcomes, Delhi Public School Mathura provides areas for active, free, social, imaginative and natural play. By inviting students to use their own initiative, explore possibilities and take chances we provide them with opportunities to learn.
