Free Play:

Free play is a period of time when a child is free to choose from a wide variety
of games, toys, puzzles or gross motor activities. Children are gaining a
newfound sense of independence through mobility and the freedom of choice
allows them to further exercise this skill. Game, toys, and puzzles are
specifically selected to meet the child’s developmental needs. Some of the
free play activities include:
  • Manipulative- this area includes puzzles, small building blocks, small
    vehicles, pegboard game, string beads, and so forth. These activities
    encourage the child’s development of problem solving techniques and
    fine motor skills along with knowledge about how objects relate to
    each other.
  • Water table/dry pour tables- Allows children to experience a wide
    variety of textures such as water, sand, dirt, rice, and beans. Objects
    such as cylinders, measuring cups, bowls, and funnels are placed on
    the tables to enable children to experiment with pouring, dumping, and
    scooping. This encourages fine motor skill development in addition to
    increasing their knowledge about various textures and materials and
    the characteristics of these objects.
  • Book Area- This area is established in a quiet corner of the room.
    Books are available for children to look are and to manipulate. Books
    are a great language facilitator and a wonderful way to introduce
    children to the joy that can be found through reading.
  • Play Doh/Clay table- These materials are available for children to roll,
    squeeze, pound, and mold. Play Doh encourages fine motor strength
    and manipulation and also encourages the development of
    knowledge about type or texture and materials. This is another area
    where language should be used to describe actions, texture and
    characteristics.
  • Music Corner- Musical instruments and tape players are available for
    manipulation for entertainment of children. Music helps children to
    begin to develop a sense of rhythm through dance, swaying, and
    clapping. However, music can also become a part of every activity, and
    adults are encouraged to sing with children many times during the day.
  • Special Activities- These include art, and cooking experiences in which
    the child can actively participate. Art actives include painting, using
    various materials and on various textures, gluing a variety of items on
    paper, Styrofoam, ECT.  As well drawing with pens, crayons, markers
    and colored pencils on various materials. Cooking exercises including
    simple recipes that enable children to observe cause and effects
    relationships and to see how things are made. These special
    activities provide children with an additional learning experience
    through manipulation of materials.

Did you know the best time to learn a foreign language is in the early years of

acquisition? That’s why we’ve created a Spanish program for children
