Play, An Essential for Child Development:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
The philosophical foundation of my book in progress Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life is that all human development emerges at the intersection of playing, making, and knowing. Play is an essential component of life at every stage. One of the reasons our education systems fail in the US is the rejection of play in the growth and development of children. Today’s post includes a section of a new book on Danish parenting that both parents and educators need to read.
“Play is so central to the Danish view of childhood that many Danish schools have programs in place to promote learning through sports, play, and exercise for all students.”
