🎧Listen to the experts from around the world👇
"Every culture that wears flip flops, their feet are collapsed, flat, and awful. Every poorer country where kids are barefoot, their feet are righteous. Our footwear is a reflection of who we are and how we get there."
"Every minute spent in front of a screen is a minute less to play freely. The more time your child spends in front of a screen, the less time your child spends on developing emotionally and socially through play."
"When we design a school, we have to design education. Otherwise architecture becomes just a box."
"The entrepreneurs are ruining youth sports because they make it year round. I always tell people 'follow the money'. If the person that's trying to get you to do it year round, makes money off doing it year round, then you know what the motivation is."
"When my class walks in the door I turn it on. I flip the switch. I'm cracking jokes. I'm trying to get them to laugh. I'm trying to make it as fun as possible. My goal is to make PE the best part of their week."
"Fitness for fitness' sake is unfortunately a waste of time."
"The joy of learning is so apparent when they're outside. We want them to be excited about learning. You can give them all the tests, all the worksheets, and all the textbooks in the world, but if they're not excited about it, if they don't have an interest in it, they're not going to do as well."
"We need to actively facilitate time for kids to play and to move. And we need to actively make it just a part of their day. Something that we've constantly tried to do as a company is take movement, and restore it to the vital place in society where it belongs."
"Through unstructured play, they're learning how to navigate on uneven paths. We can't teach them how to fall, they have to learn that through experiences of play."
