This month the preschool program has been very busy with our building blocks, this particular moment a large group of children worked collaboratively together to build a large structure. As a part of our philosophy, we value the importance of leaving these structures up for children to revisit, as it adds so much value to their ideas of play! Over the course of two days this structure first started as a dramatic play structure where it was water protecting them from the “Lava”. As the day progressed this structure became an important “MACHINE”, and the children would add specific materials to “MAKE IT WORK”. We were curious about what they think "machines" are and what it means to them when they say "make it work". We will be exploring this further, stay tuned...
