Loose Parts Play is an interesting concept that came about in the 1970’s. It had a significant influence on early childhood educators as well as those who designed play spaces for children. According to architect Simon Nicholson, including “loose parts” in our child’s environment empowers and stimulates creativity.
The key to maximizing your child’s experiences within an early learning centre is effective communication. When families and educators are on the same page with the child’s progress, the child flourishes.
