Sunday 17th May 2015 is national children’s day which is looking to spread the word about how important play is to children. It’s not just about them having fun. On the national children’s day website they explain that “Play is so important to optimal child development that it has been recognised by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child (Article 31)”
So in celebration of the importance of play, I’ve put together this list of my 3 favourite ‘play’ quotes!
1) “Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity”
