Extracts from Play, naturally - August 2006

"For Children, play is a biological drive and the primary mechanism through which they encounter and 

explore their immediate physical environments. Children play instinctively with natural elements; they 

are natural experts."

"Extensive research shows that children have a strong and deep rooted sensitivity to the natural world".

"The human relationship with the natural world is complex. The distinction between nature and human-made is a relatively new concept, 

reflecting significant changes to the physical, social, cultural, economic and political landscape".
