2 great articles on play...

We all know so well how infants first acquire play skills and continue to refine them when given what RIE's principles encourage: "time for uninterrupted play" every day and "freedom to explore and interact with other infants." That's when initiative and creativity begin to be sensed and known within the young child, becoming a beacon throughout their lives. I'm sure you will enjoy these TWO GREAT ARTICLES ON PLAY.
