The Importance Of Open-Ended Play In Children

Children learn about the world around them through play, and one type of play particularly important during early years is open-ended play. This is when children are free to use their imagination and creativity without any specific goal or rules and instructions.

Open-ended play provides opportunities for children to practice important cognitive skills such as memory, attention, and perception.

When children are able to direct their own playtime, they are exercising their decision making abilities. This can be a key way to help your child grow their self-esteem as they become more independent and confident within the play space and beyond.

A great way to assist with free play is providing your child with safe open-ended toys to encourage them to explore more complex thinking and decision making, for example quality building blocks or stacking toys.
