This curriculum promotes play. Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist and developmental theorist, recognized the importance of play its role in the development of logical thinking. According to Piaget, play serves many purposes and provides and excellent vehicle for learning. By handling many different materials, children learn to observe, compare, sort, and sequence. Their knowledge grows as they experiment, make discoveries, and modify their current thinking to incorporate new insights.
