Imaginative Learning = Success in School

Creative, unstructured play is essential for early brain development. In fact, research now shows that child-led imaginative play builds an essential cognitive skill called executive function. Well-developed executive function helps children resist impulsivity and exercise self-control--key skills they need to succeed in school. In fact, executive function is a better indicator of success in school than IQ. Old-Fashioned Play Builds Serious Skills Morning Edition, NPR News (Tacoma, WA: KPLU, Feb. 21, 2008).
