What is Room to Play?
Room to Play is a philosophy of nature-inspired parenting, teaching and gardening! I offer a wide range of consulting services for parents, teachers and community service providers.
I value the thoughtful preparation of space for children’s play and learning, and strive to keep visual noise and electronic distractions to a minimum. I am inspired by an emergent curriculum. I am influenced by Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio, Forest School and Nature school pedagogy. I advocate for unstructured, and sometimes risky, nature play in children’s lives.
I am able to help you re-consider how you use limited space in your home, provide practical solutions to family organizational challenges, and inspire you with playful ideas for a backyard your kids will actually want to play in!
I blog often about the value of play in children’s lives. It is informed by many academic and real- life influences, so be sure to read through the Room to Play posts for inspiration and ideas.
