We are a small family and my name is Eda, a mother of a then 6-month-old baby boy living in Jakarta, Indonesia. I bought my son, Jordan, many toys that simply for amusement. But none of these toys encouraged imaginations and creativity, sparked long-term interests and trained his focus. They were mainly functioned as entertainment, only providing amusement. It was not a wise decision financially either.
So we searched and searched until one day she came across a method called Open-Ended Play. It is an educational play approach based on scientific observations that encourages a supportive learning environment and values the development of a child, considering everything from physical and cognitive development to social and emotional.
