I totally agree with the whole learning through play ideology.

We have to find a good balance with both, but at pre-school, perhaps more play?
Or perhaps parents can find a way to create fun through meaningful objectives..

As a parent of a preschooler, play is more important for my daughter during this stage. I believe that she must be able to satisfy her need for physical activities because once she gets older, she might regret that she was not able to play during her preschool days. And I think that she is also learning from her physical activities like patience and following instructions.

I have read this article from Education.com about the importance of play for preschoolers. As a summary, it is important because:

- It helps the development of language and vocabulary;
- Widens their imagination and creativity;
- Provides real-life problem solving and application of Mathematics;
- Great avenue for their gross and fine motor development

Play matters to me. They need to fulfill their childhood with lots of time in playing because when they reach the Primary years, the "real school" starts.
