Our program is “play-based” with significant portions of the day devoted to self-directed, imaginary play. Our goal is to support and encourage activities initiated by the young child. Time spent in this way has great purpose and significance for the child; these activities are not random and have a pattern and organization in keeping with the child’s level of mental ability. Allowing the child time and freedom to complete these activities to his or her personal satisfaction nourishes that child’s powers of concentration and attention. At Little Folks, we respect and value the self-initiated play of young children.
