A series of film screenings and discussions about the role of play in children's lives. Please call 508-230-3789 for info on bringing the discussion to your school, group or library.
Where Do the Children Play? is a PBS documentary, book, and outreach project about the vital importance of open-ended play for the healthy development of children. This kind of play is disappearing from children’s lives because of unsafe neighborhoods, parents’ fear of “stranger danger,” even in safe neighborhoods; the seductiveness of electronic games and entertainment; an increase in teacher-led instruction in preschool and kindergarten that is pushing child-initiated learning and exploration out of the classroom; and children’s diminishing access to woods, fields, vacant lots, parks, and other semi-wild play spaces.
