Playtime is Important Time for Children

Play is an important part of growing up healthy. It contributes to the social, emotional, cognitive and physical well-being of children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has expressed concern that when academic achievement is emphasized over recess and regular physical activity, children living in poverty may have the most to lose.

PositiveTip: Participate in playful, physical activities with your children to help them become tomorrow’s productive citizens.
