The Role of Sport and Free Play in Healthy Childhood Development
Tuesday | October 24 | 6-8pm | Suggested donation $15 at the door
Please join us in welcoming Jaimen McMillan, founder of Spacial Dynamics® and an internationally recognized movement expert, to Nevada Sage Waldorf School for an evening discussion on the importance of free time in children’s lives.
- Remember the days when children’s time was not so overbooked and sports were not everything?
- Remember when your friends wanted you to “come out and play?”
- Remember the days when sports were not everything and children’s time was not so overbooked?
- When you went over to your friend’s house, just to play?
We sensed something important was going on back then, and we were right. Play rises above other activities. It is the creation of space in which new activities can take place… a world of untold possibilities. But, in today’s hectic world, our children are in danger of losing the space of free play. As teachers and parents, we are faced with selecting and orienting our children’s activities. How do we choose? What do we base our decisions on?
