The Importance of Play

The sixth grade students at The Philadelphia School studied the importance of play. Through self-reflection, close observation of preschool children, and the study of play research, they developed insightful ideas around the role of play in their lives. This was an opportunity to tap into the experience and knowledge of the real experts: children.

The sixth graders studied the play of the children at the Schuylkill Center's Nature Preschool and our own preschoolers at TPS.  They presented their findings to TPS parents and parents of the Nature Preschool at SCEE. They also served as Play Experts and held a panel discussion about their philosophy of play.
