Loose Play

The theory of ‘loose parts play’ was first proposed in the 1970’s by architect Simon Nicholson, who believed that it is the loose parts in our environment that empower our creativity.

Examples of Loose Parts Play Materials:

Stones and pebbles
Sticks and logs
Pine cones
Buckets
Shells
Twine or rope
Tree stumps
Tiles
Fabric
Scrap wood
Straw
Baskets

We believe that introducing ‘loose play’ at SMPS will be beneficial to our children’s experience in school, providing a fun and stimulating environment in which they can, individually or  cooperatively with their peers, develop skill and competence while relying on their own creativity and imagination.
