What is Authentic Learning?
authentic learning opportunities.
It’s my passion in this life to help Mums have more quality time with their kids (because who doesn’t love quality time – am I right?!), by supporting their children to tap into the limitless learning opportunities that exist around them.
How does authentic learning create more quality time for Mums and their kids, you ask?
When learning happens authentically, organically and ‘on-the-go’, time for regimented and structured learning activities are no longer needed (hello, spaciousness!) This time can then be used to connect/adventure/relax or simply, be present with one another.
At Stories of Play, we believe that:
are all around us and we don’t need to ‘teach’ our children before they will learn. They are always learning!
is in and of itself, a learning activity. There doesn’t have to be a specific learning outcome - the journey itself supports them to learn!
who embrace self-directed play, often feel less overwhelmed, and more calm, empowered and stress free.
Less activities and planning.
More connection and presence.
Never ending learning and development.
My professional and personal experience has shown me that
children who engage in self-directed play and child-led play:
Are capable decision makers
Transform boredom into creativity
Naturally discover their own areas of interests
Can problem solve
Have perseverance and determination
Are resilient and able to pick themselves up when they ‘fail’
But now I often just go with the flow and I feel like I don’t have to force anything. The biggest change so far is within myself. Letting go of expectations and not worrying about whether I’m doing enough, I realise that when I do less, they actually learn more.”
Now, my 15 month old toddler is able to play independently in her own play space I have created for her based on what I have learnt from the program on creating an inviting play space."
If you're thinking twice because you may not have the time to watch it or invest time to apply, then I can attest to it that you don't have to go through ALL of the materials to be able to make a difference or change. It's a gradual process and it takes time, yes, but there's no regrets. It's one of the best investments I've made.
It is a huge myth
that we need to TEACH our children before they will LEARN.
If this were true, children would never learn how to crawl, walk or talk, would they?
The fact of the matter is, children are intrinsically wired to WANT TO LEARN. And they are capable of learning of their own accord.
