NPR Video on the Vital Role of Play in Brain Development

As we prepare to begin another school year on the cutting edge of education, here is more affirmation regarding why Fairhaven School works. From National Public Radio, then, this piece identifies the vital role of one of the central activities here: play.

The story begins with this: “When it comes to brain development, time in the classroom may be less important than time on the playground.” After sixteen years of providing a place where young people play as much as they choose, we know its inestimable value. With this latest research, we have further evidence to support our experience. Follow the link below for the story.
