Free exploration lets our friends on the playground learn the world around them at their own pace, with their own abilities! It can also encourage joint attention, concept learning, and their use of senses! Kids of all ages love to explore!
Here are ways that families can continue to promote interactive learning and discovery at home, backyard, or your neighborhood:
