Invitations to Play

Loose parts play is a big part of the process in early-childhood classrooms where materials guide children to make connections, explore their environments, investigate the world, and begin to draw insightful conclusions. Children come to the Studio each day and are met with new provocations to explore and manipulate. This opens a whole new world of possibilities as they learn materials can be combined, sorted and shaped to create allusions to ideas they are developing and questioning in their daily lives.
