Play Associates set up and step back. Play Associates manage the space and the Imagination Playground™ Loose Parts, and they will be responsible for making daily safety checks of the entire site. Play Associates do not direct play or teach children how to use the objects or environment.
They might sometimes quietly demonstrate a different use of materials but there will be no teaching or schedule of recreation programs. What children do will be the result of their inherent curiosity and urge to play.
Play Associates will enable children to play in ways that would not be possible without a trained staff to monitor the resources.
