Discovery and Play are Foundation for Developing into a Secure Adult


I got to hear from the Playground Guru, one of the "Fathers of the Modern Playgrounds" (the ones that used to have a see saws and swings), Jay Beckwith. He designed the Gymboree play structure. This man is so passionate about preserving purposeful playgrounds. He explained how play and the process of discovery are equivalent to Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs! In his designs of playgrounds, he considers how each piece of playground equipment facilitates the development sequence; new discovery, play, practice, then mastery of equipment. Very interesting perspective! As we grow in life, we need to repeatedly have these experiences in order to eventually grow into secure adults. #play #maslowshiearchyofneeds
