Loose Parts at Tillys Play and Development Centre Greta

Greta Tillys is passionate about Loose Parts Play - providing children with open ended materials that they can play with in any way they like. Loose parts can be moved, manipulated, assembled, disassembled, combined and re-invented in various ways and can be indoors or outdoors. Children can use, interact with and explore the materials in a variety of ways which then helps to develop motor skills, build confidence, explore mathematic and scientific concepts, provide heavy work and proprioceptive sensory input, encourage relationships, team work, ngotiating, problem solving and language, discover, hypothesise, scaffold each other's knowledge and become curious, confident, creative and have commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, patience and imagination.
