CAYC Position Statement on Play  

CAYC believes that play is and should be promoted as a fundamental right of children. It is “more than mere indulgence; it is essential to children’s health and well-being” (Lester and Russell, 2010). It is the responsibility of adults to understand the importance of play, promote the value of play, and create opportunities for children’s play. )
