A Word from Raffi (Children’s singer, entertainer and advocate)
Maria Montessori, one of the last century’s most brilliant educators, said that “play is the work of children.” I often quote her when speaking to groups of parents and teachers, and then add, “and young children are 100% employed, all the time.”
It’s through play that children make sense of things, from their own physical bodies to the web of animals and people in their lives. In a society dominated by “work,” adults sometimes trivialize play, forgetting that it inspires both imagination and creativity—what we all need to become the best we can be.
Play takes its own time; remember, it’s called “play and not “fast forward.” Lifelong learning and emotional health begin with child’s play. Play’s the thing! So get on out to your Children’s Museum and PLAY!!
