Quotes on Why Children Need Play

Posted on December 4, 2010 at 7:16 PM
Quotes on Play and Learning 
 
“It is a happy talent to know how to play.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson   
 
“Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the  free expression of what is in a child's soul.”
-Friedrich Froebel (Father of modern kindergarten)
 
“It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.”
-Leo Buscaglia, author, educator
 
“Adults who criticise teachers for allowing children to play are unaware that play is the principal means of learning in early childhood. It is the way through which children reconcile their inner lives with external reality. In play, children gradually develop concepts of causal relationships, the power to discriminate, to make judgements, to analyse and synthesise, to imagine and to formulate. Children become absorbed in their play and the satisfaction of bringing it to a satisfactory conclusion fixes habits of concentration which can be transferred to other learning.”
-BASS Early Years Advisory Team
 
“Play is a major avenue for learning to manage anxiety. It gives the child a safe space where she can experiment at will, suspending the rules and constraints of physical and social reality. In play, the child becomes master rather than subject.... Play allows the child to transcend passivity and to become the active doer of what happens around her.”
-Alicia F. Lieberman, author, The Emotional Life of the Toddler
 
“It’s not so much what children learn through play, but what they won’t learn if we don’t give them the chance to play. Many functional skills like literacy and arithmetic can be learned either through play or through instruction—the issue is the amount of stress on the child. However, many coping skills like compassion, selfregulation, selfconfidence, the habit of active engagement, and the motivation to learn and be literate cannot be instructed. They can only be learned through selfdirected experience (i.e. play).”
-Susan J. Oliver, Playing for Keeps
