The Power of Play - Segment 2/6
Power of Play captures age appropriate behavior and forms of play that will assist parents in determining the best ways to help their children develop their creative and critical thinking skills in early childhood; skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
Power of Plays message is clear and compelling: Children need unstructured time and opportunities to simply play; play alone, play with other children, and especially to play with their own parents.
As early childhood experts make clear, "play is a childs job." Unstructured play is crucial to the development of children during their formative years from birth to age eight. It is how they learn about themselves and the world around them.
In todays world of over-scheduling children through well meaning parents who want their children to be prepared as early as possible for school and learning, The Power of Play comes along to refute some of the notions about the benefits of overly structured early childhood education.
This documentary is a must-see for parents, teachers, and anyone else who is in the role of care-giver to young children.
