Value of True Play

I just found a great article on the value of true play. I really enjoyed it so I thought I would share.

That was a great article. I especially liked the section about preschool. I have getting a lot of flak from people about Logan going to a home daycare and not a center that is structured and geared towards higher education. I have always felt that a home like situation is much better for their development. Yes, they do have structured play/preschool time everyday, but they also have a lot of free play time both in the morning and after nap.
