Parents’ Guide to Structured vs



Through play children can develop important life skills that help prepare them for experiences later in life. There are two types of play: structured and unstructured. Structured play requires a child to follow directions or rules, as is guided by an adult. Unstructured play a child can do what interests them and aren’t any guidelines set in place. Like most things in life, balance is key.

Toddlers should spend at least one hour each day in unstructured play and at least 30 each day in structured play. There is no such thing are too much play for babies and toddlers, because play is how children learn.
