Free Play

Free play is giving children opportunities where they are independently creating experiences, learning about the world around them and interacting with other people.  This picture taken is a lovely way to showcase this.

A small group of children were engaging in free play where they were, “Having a BBQ”.  A social event unfolded, sharing out food for their friends, discussing ideas and thinking about the needs of others.  It’s great to step back sometimes and quietly observe, allowing children freedom to express themselves  🙂
