Best Teaching Agencies’ Value Learn and Play

best teaching agencies

A rock can be a key fob. A rag can be a baby. A block can be a phone. Even marks on a page can be a story. That is how much power play holds in stretching the imaginations of children.


Just as the act of reading involves the scanning across of symbols which together make words that carry specific ideas, so do children make the same cerebral leaps when they play.

Sometimes, all a kid needs is a rock. Imagination does the rest.

Play is a serious business

However, oftentimes, play is talked about as if it were a relief or a break from serious learning. But, for children, it is serious learning. Play is the work of childhood.


Einstein once said “Play is the highest form of research” and it buttresses the fact that learning and playing are not mutually exclusive events. In fact, through play young minds are stretched and prepared for eventual literacy tasks. It prepares their brain for reading as play often goes hand in hand with language practice, dialogue development, and story structure.

The Critical Role of the Teacher

It takes a very well-trained and experienced teacher to design and deliver play sessions in the classroom that can invoke pupils’ imagination to places even beyond the classroom. Dress-up areas, sand tables, sensory tables, blocks, and the like usually characterize these classrooms.


In the early year’s education sector, one best bet for landing such talented, innovative, and proactive teachers for your center is by using an agency. Many are teaching agencies but the best teaching agencies like Quint Education are deeply committed to finding the best fits as early years education staff.

Children can drive the plot and can change the outcome of a scary situation or try out different solutions to a problem.
