Play focuses on developmental stages

Play across the lifespan is a journey of where the individual is at each stage of life.  There are certain developmental stages that must be addressed and learned to move onto the next stage.  If a stage is missed that was not mastered or learned at some point in the person's life it must be addressed to continue to grow, develop and mature.

Experiences are the key to motivated, meaningful development across the lifespan.

The power of play and the love of family Is the central task of an individuals growth and development across the life span.  Its foundation rests on the balance between helping the person consolidate new understanding and offering challenges that promote growth and learning.
