Free Play+Creative Play= Happy Children

 

Free play is ALL about children making choices; it does NOT involve adult ruled decisions. We must make room for FREE PLAY in our early childhood classrooms and family child care homes.

The children learn to make plans, focus on creative self expression, and take turns. Free play is the only time that children have control of their own environment.

Creative Play is a great partner of Free Play. It enables the children to interact with their environment, to manipulate objects and express their feelings and ideas.

The light table is a wonderful place for children to play freely and creatively.
