Steiner approach to play

Janni Nicol (Early Childhood Executive - Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship (SWSF) talks about the Steiner Kindergarten approach to play.
To a healthy child, playing is not only a pleasurable pass time, but also an absolutely serious activity. Play flows in real earnest out of the child's entire organism.

Rudolph Steiner. The Child’s Changing Consciousness, 18/04/1923

We must not thing out work to do, even in play, that is not an imitation of life itself.
