Free-flow play allows children to follow through their play ideas in the most appropriate place, their concentration is maintained and the opportunity to move into a new space will often extend their play and offer opportunities for involvement of additional children.
When children can freely choose where to play, they don’t have to wait for a special time in the day to try out ideas, or to practice new skills, or simply to work on a larger scale than indoors. The building and other users restrict us from doing free-flow continually.
Free-flow happens between 9.30a.m. to 10.40a.m. and 1.30p.m. to 2.50p.m. This allows Fun for Twos to spend time outside. We are very aware that some children, given the choice, would not go outside at all, so between 11.15a.m and 11.50a.m.every child will start their play outside.
