Play Principle

A Little Patch of Earth adheres to the principle of play as the child’s greatest work.

Play is a child’s primary learning experience.  Teachers support play by responding to the children’s play needs; supplying tools and providing long periods of uninterrupted time for children to express their individuality, imagination and problem solving skills.

This sets the stage for important social interactions which provide even more opportunity for children to express their autonomy, their feelings, accept responsibility, develop empathy, build communication skills and shape a positive self-identity.
