Playing Attention

Yesterday in The Providence Journal, education columnist Julia Steiny discussed the importance of open-ended play and Providence Children's Museum's role in providing creative play spaces and encouraging greater understanding of the benefits of unstructured play. We're absolutely thrilled! Check it out.

And there has been active & fascinating discussion on the new PlayWatch listserv in the last few weeks. People are clearly passionate about play and have A LOT to say about it, and the listserv has been a great way to facilitate an open exchange of ideas and information. Sign up for the list using the link above if you'd like to join the conversation!
