Preschool Water Play made a Splash at Champions Club after hosting its first session last Friday, February 26.
The Toddler Pool at Champions Club was filled with little ones as the sounds of laughter and splashes filled the air. The February Water Play was just the first in a series of Preschool Water Play sessions that will be available this Spring. Each event includes a variety of structured aquatic activities, followed by time for free play afterward.
While there’s no denying that playing in a toddler pool is fun, there are more benefits to allowing your small child to participate in water play than meets the eye. Let’s dive into the advantages of water play!
Discovering water helps young children develop their sense of touch. Exploring opposing textures such as wet and dry, and experimenting with changes in temperature plays a role in learning to perceive their surroundings.
Apart from learning about diverse environments, water play is an excellent source of exercise for little bodies. Wading and playing in shallow water, kicking their legs, and experiencing water resistance is a great way for kids to be physically active. Additionally, water play helps ignite children’s imagination by engaging them in pretend play. Who doesn’t love playing pirates or mermaids at the pool?
Discovering aquatics early holds multiple advantages for young children, and it’s a great way to spend quality time as a family. If you missed last week’s Water Play, make sure to mark your calendar for upcoming sessions in Spring!
We look forward to seeing you there!
