ActivitiesAll Ages1 Comment

Meet Jenny from Let the Children Play!
(This is part four in a series of features on the hosts of It’s Playtime!)

Jenny is the author behind the blog, Let the Children Play. Her name explains her philosophy loud and clear. The posts she writes are definitely reminders to just let the children play!

Jenny is an Australian, mom to two boys, and a preschool teacher that has a love for progressive education.

She may not teach her preschool class the typical teaching way (especially compared to here in the US) that we’re used to seeing in a classroom. As with all of us Playtime Hosts, she’s a firm believer in child-let activities, and it being the best way for children to learn.

When I think of Let the Children Play, I see groups of children working together, collaborating in their activities, making things happen. You can find children making obstacle courses or even a mud kitchen and many more inspirational, child-led activities.

Though some of my favorite activities are done inside Jenny’s classroom. There the children are found tinkering with real materials, making art from potions, and building with blocks.

I gather a lot of my inspiration from Let the Children Play. You’ll find numerous posts with lists of ways to get the girls to the block cornerrainy day activities, and outdoor music ideas, along with many, many more.
