Children’s experiences are primarily gained through playing. Playing contributes significantly to healthy mental, physical, social and emotional personality development. It is an essential part of childhood, and is the most important way for children to examine themselves and their environment.
To encourage the child to develop into an independent personality, it is crucial to enable them to experience free playing, without constant observation. Unsupervised playing allows them to explore their environment, test and practise their own solutions in difficult situations, and take responsibility for themselves and others without adult intervention and evaluation.
We believe it is important to give the children enough time to play, and allow them to largely determine their own daily routine.
Time creates space for development, in which the children can increasingly perceive and understand their life and their world. We support the child’s playing abilities by consciously enduring periods of boredom and not simply offering a new activity. Boredom often gives rise to further and very creative playing situations. A child capable of playing already meets the basic requirements for starting school, and can face the challenges of everyday day-care life in a confident, invigorated manner.
