Scientific studies show play that engages both the mind and the body improves brain and physical development.
Children of all ages get to use their large muscles as they move around, whether on two feet or by crawling, climbing, or sliding in the play frames. This is called gross-motor play.
Fine-motor skills are practiced, for example, when placing blocks carefully to build a tall tower or tracing routes on puzzles with fingers.
Gross- and fine-motor play are important for physical development, both for muscles and bones. The brain gets to be exercised by movement play too. For example, when controlling the body while balancing, or placing a block in the right position.
Indigo Play is a place for children to gain confidence through self-directed play.
Young minds benefit from the many types of play children will experience at Indigo: social play, storytelling or narrative play, sensory and spatial discovery, exploration and puzzle solving, imaginative and role play.
Play at Indigo is incredibly fun and promotes development of a child’s mind and body.
