"Play is the work of childhood"
What is an Invitation to Play?
An invitation to play is a concept derived from the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. The Reggio philosophy encourages children to learn through exploration, by providing materials that 'invite them to play' in a creative and non-directive way.
Here at Invitations to Play we are advocates for the child. We view children as inherently capable and competent, and worthy of respect and trust on their learning journey. We passionately believe in the value of child led play, as a powerful tool for learning.
