Why is play important for children?

For child development i have to research what is play and why it is important, types of play, stages of play. Please would you be able to give me any information you know as I'm trying to get the highest grade possible (and by the way I'm not trying to get out of doing it by using this)

    All work and no play makes the child dull. Play is equally important. The new education concept is based on play and learn. Play releases the energy in the child, makes the child more confident. Individual game like chess increases concentration, scrabble increases vocabulary, and team game like football develops team spirit and leadership qualities. All these qualities improves academics. So play is very important as in this competitive world you need not be only intelligent but smart too.

    It helps relax the mind. It's common knowledge that children have an attention span, so if they're focusing for ages on something they won't be working to their full potential, that's why you need things like break time at school
