Is There Really a Smarter Way to Play?

You may have noticed the slogan on this web site stating that Romp n’ Roll is the “smarter way to play.” And you may be wondering, if play is all about having fun, is there really one manner of doing so that is wiser than another? Well, the answer to that question is an emphatic “Yes!”

It is through play that a child refines his senses, improves his large and small motor abilities, enhances his linguistic and cognitive capacities, practices his problem-solving, stimulates his imagination and creativity, and develops his social skills. And you probably can find any number of places that will provide your child with appropriate opportunities to work on one or even some of these. But with its wide variety of Gym, Art, Music, and Adventure classes, Romp n’ Roll gives him the chance to literally do it all.

A good definition of intelligence is “taking an approach that gives you the maximum return on your investment of time and energy.” So when it comes to ensuring that your little one will make the most developmental progress while having the most fun, there is no doubt that Romp n’ Roll is indeed “the smarter way to play.”
