Better Kid Care: Play Supports Executive Functioning

Executive function skills are a broad set of skills that support the process of thinking and learning. Growing research shares the importance of executive function skills as critical building blocks in learning and as predictors of school achievement. Early childhood teachers play a central role in promoting executive function skills. How? Think play. Complex and intentional play, such as dramatic play and partner play, can be the springboard to inviting many executive function skills to be practiced and mastered.
