Play Day 2012: Children, parents to celebrate play at Rowan eventApril 26, 2012
Students in Rowan University's Early Childhood Club will present Play Day 2012, a community wide day of fun for area children and their parents, on Sunday, April 29, from 1-4 p.m. on the practice soccer fields on the University's Glassboro campus.
Children ages 3-10, along with their parents, are invited to enjoy a host of activities—from sack races and hula hoop contests to jewelry making and a cardboard city—as they join Rowan students for a day designed to celebrate the importance of play in our lives. Activities will demonstrate how parents can become partners in play with their children.
Play Day, which is free and open to the public, will be held rain or shine. Registration for the day is not necessary.
According to Rowan Teacher Education Professor Karen Hutchison, an expert on play, play addresses the key domains of a child's development, including the physical, cognitive and social/emotional domains.
During Play Day, Rowan students will give a presentation to parents discussing the importance of play in a child's development. The presentation begins at 2 p.m.
