  • Wan Ching Foo
    Ms. Foo Wan Ching has always taken an interest in the arts and that led her to pursue a Diploma in TV Production from the Malaysia Institute of Art (MIA) soon after high school. During this time she learned about the relationship and dynamics between stories and characters, and wondered how she could help in making better stories in people’s lives. Following her college mentor’s advice she then embarked on the journey to help young people connect with their gifts and aptitude through education fairs and counseling workshops through initiatives of the Centre for Malaysian Chinese Studies.

Play and Development

  • Play is an important part of development on many levels; physical,social,emotional and creative. We live in times when play and the social interaction of many children have become associated with screens and sedentary activity.
  • At its heart play is a social and emotional development activity. Humans are social beings and have to learn to live and interact with others to be successful in the world.
  • Play is the work of childhood’ and is how we learn about the world.
  • Play is children’s language. It is how they express their feeling; it is how they act out what is happening to them.
  • Play has also been described as what children and young people do when they are not being told what to do by adults’.
  • Play teaches a child how to interact with others. There are lessons to be learned for a child if he is to be ready to interact well with others when he gets to school. He needs to know how to take turns, play nicely and solve problems through words not aggression.

Benefits of Play

Play has many benefits for children:

  • Increases self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-respect
  • Promotes a sense of security and safety
  • Develops language skills through talking and listening
  • Teaches how to negotiate
  •  Improves and maintains physical and mental health
  •  Increases confidence
  • Promotes imagination, independence and creativity

Movement is an integral part of play. Some children who have retained primitive reflexes often have difficulties in playing and interacting with others of their own age and finding a sense of belonging and security in the world.
