Description: Play has been called the work of a child. Some adults consider play as something frivolous and a complete waste of time. But, to the young child, play is very serious business requiring deep concentration. Play is a time to be absorbed in painting a picture, building with blocks or being a “Grandfather” in a dramatic play area. The feelings are earnest and intense.
A child engrossed in play is a lot like an adult working on a project he/she loves or an artist enthralled in their creation.
Play is a time for thinking, a time to solve problems and a time to investigate. Play is a time to organize thoughts. Play is a time to use mind and body, along with the social skills possessed, to respond to an idea or situation.
Play is a time to learn from each other and learn about the world in which they live!
The “work time” element of our curriculum has a playful quality as describes above. Children work individually or in small groups and flow from task to task. The teacher’s role is to provide challenging stimulus and expand upon the child’s learning, guiding their development. As the children “play/work” teachers are busy hearing what they say, “reading” each child’s face and sensing what is on their minds. The observations create the agenda for future plans with the children as individuals and as a group.
