Did you know?
Free play is often physically active, highly joyful and meaningful to children.
Free play is linked to executive functions, self-regulation, social skills, self-esteem, health and well-being.
Children set own goals in the play, following their interests. They are often very active: exploring, asking what if, re-inventing ideas and creating new meanings.
