Heuristic play with Loose Parts is a wonderful opportunity to capitalise on toddlers’ curiosity about the objects that make up the world around them. Indoors or Outdoors, using Loose Parts with Heuristic learning opportunities brings Play to Learn strategy to life.
The resources and Loose Parts that make up our collection are not the kinds of objects traditionally thought of as toys for young children but they provide equally valuable opportunities for extending children’s learning. There is no right and wrong way to play with Heuristic resources so everyone’s ideas are equally valid and worthwhile. The open ended nature of the resources means that all toddlers can explore and investigate in their own way, applying their own creative ideas and building on their own experiences.
