Play - The Importance Of Play - Children, Skills, Language, Social, Development, and World Through play, children learn the skills necessary to effectively participate in their world through play. Play provides children with natural opportunities to engage in concrete and meaningful activities that enhance physical, language, social, and cognitive development. During play, children increase their knowledge and understanding of self, others, and the physical world around them. A child's motor development becomes increasingly more refined through the physical activity that play naturally provides.
