The Fewer Toys Children Have, The More They Play - Raised Good

Twenty years ago, there was an experiment in a nursery school. Researchers wanted to see what would happen if they took toys away from kindergartens. So all of the toys from participating classrooms were removed for three months.

One of the teachers, Gisela Marti, said: “In these three months we offer the children space and time to get to know themselves and because they are not being directed by teachers or toys, the children have to find new ways to master their day in their own individual way.”

We're lead to be believe that if a little is good, then more is better. But, the irony is when it comes to toys, the fewer kids have the more they play.

Welcome to our family.

Do you want to see and be part of how your child learns, and develops through play?

The FRC is your village. See children delight in their surroundings - play with them, alongside them, encourage them to interact with others while you meet other adults, caregivers, and community partners.

Parents are the first educators of children, and the FRC helps foster the foundations of early childhood education.

As a family, and as a community, you’ll build your own village with the FRC: making life-long friends along the way.
