This is a really interesting story in today’s news. Here at Aston Childcare, as well as adult led play, I ensure the children have lots of free unstructured play time.

Do you think children spend enough time ‘just’ playing?

1 Comment on In the news…not enough play

  1. Children need a lot of “just playing“ time. When children play ,they use their imagination, improve their social skills ,manipulating skilss,etc….So, “just playing“ isn`t just playing. It`s their time to work on themselves by themselves. Time when kids just playing is valuable for them. Observe children during that time,free game and you`ll find out a lot about child . Children show us what they need and how to help them…observe,listen….by heart. There is time for led play and there is time for free play. Both ways are valuable . Just my opinion….
