31. The Play School.
Mrs. HETHERINGTON, Professor HETHERINGTON, Dr. Beach and STAFF. The Demonstration: The Play School will be conducted as a demon
stration of the organization, materials, activities, and methods involved in uniting, within one school organization the spontaneous play life of the child together with his need and desire for leadership and society's demands that he be instructed. It is an effort to solve elementary educational problems by harmonizing the extra-home educational experience of the child by combining in one institution, in the spirit of education, the functions of the play center and the functions of the school; hence the term, Play School. Further, the plan unites in this larger school idea the many new successful educational experiments that have arisen with modern social changes. Therefore, the Play School may be defined as an outdoor or fresh air play-center and school combined, where the teacher's interest is centered in the children and their activities, not in mere subjects of study, and where the educational efforts, including the moral and social phases, are put on a basis of practical living experience radiating into the whole environment, and where the children are considered both as free active agents and also immature social creatures requiring social control and discipline. The plan covers the ages from early infancy to the adolescent period. Instead of teaching subjects, activities are organized out of which subjects develop, as they have in racial history. The activities organized are the natural, more or less distinct phases of the child's complete life. The
usual school subjects develop as phases of these activities. The Theory of the Play School: A course of lectures and discussions
on the educational principles involved in the organization and management of the Play School.
