Positive psychology forms the basis of the Imagineland resource.
Our founder, Dr Charles Margerison wanted to provide a fun engaging and creative learning tool to spark children’s imaginations while learning through play. We know that creativity in children has overwhelmingly positive effects including intellectual benefits, physical benefits, emotional and social benefits plus the improvement of social communication skills. When children use their imagination in play, they are developing crucial psychological and emotional capacities that help them understand the world in which they live and their relation to it; they are learning to problem solve, creating new possibilities, that in time could even change the world.
Einstein famously said, ‘Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.’
