- INSPIRE: Loose Parts help children inspire imagination and creativity on their own terms and in their own unique way. Loose Parts create endless possibilities and invite creativity.
- CHILD CENTERED: Open-ended materials, environments, and experiences encourage problem solving and are child centered.
- LEARNING EXPERIENCES: Children involve themselves in concrete experiences using Loose Parts, which lead to explorations that occur naturally, as opposed to adult directed. However, adults do play important, intentional roles in preparing, guiding, and documenting open- ended learning experiences.
- MAKING CONNECTIONS: When children are encouraged to integrate play materials and areas in their own creative ways, they are experiencing open-ended learning.
