What is heuristic (hyoo-ris-tic) play?

Heuristic play is about supporting curiosity, wonder, imagination and free exploration. Our open ended, play items, allow children to select, explore, manipulate and compare items with each other. During their play, the child is engaged in their own learning while building their own opinions about what the object can or can't do. 

These type of open ended play items are often referred to as “Loose Parts”. Loose parts are materials that can be explored in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials.

It's the BEST way to engage and ignite children's imagination!
