Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul.
" To Froebel belongs the credit for finding the true nature of play and regulating it to lead naturally into work.
The same spontaneity and joy, the same freedom and serenity that characterise the plays of childhood are realised in all human actiity.
The gifts and occupations are the living connection which makes both play and work expressions of the same creative activity. " W N Hailmann
