Investigative play

‘Children learn as they play. Most importantly in play children learn how to learn.’

‘Play is the highest form of research.’

‘Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.’ Loris Malaguzzi.
