Statement on Play
Follow the link for Early Childhood Australia's, a national advocacy body, Statement on Play.
We encourage you to take the time to read it.
It's a lovely read and emphasises how critical quality play is for our children. Another connection that can be made is how close the Principles and Practices align to the philosophy of teaching that we offer at Hensman Street Elementary. As a teacher, and we imagine as parents too it 's comforting to know that the education your child/ children are receiving is aligned to current research and best practice.
If you ever have questions about "Play" please drop in to the office for a chat, or meet with one of our expert teachers.
We are all very passionate about the benefits of play!
