Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Flow
Updated: Jun 24, 2022
FLOW recognises that play and creativity are central, integrating elements in development and learning, giving children the opportunity to understand, challenge and explore the world, and their place in it. Activities that lead to a state of *flow are often child-directed, meaning children take charge of their own learning by exploring topics that they choose. This focused, fulfilling 'flow' state – naturally occurs in children and adults during play, movement, and hands-on activities.
