A Wild Rumpus: An Anji Play Experience
Madison Parks and Madison Public Library bring you A Wild Rumpus: An Anji Play Experience at three parks June - August. Anji play is an educational philosophy centered on self-determined play, created by Ms. Cheng Xueqin, Director of Early Education in Anji County, China. This approach is based on five pillars: Love, Risk, Joy, Engagement and Reflection.
Enjoy free, child-led play in the park each week throughout the summer. The library provides special play equipment to spark your children's imagination and kids create a play story based on their activities of the day. Meanwhile, grownups have an opportunity to help their kids reflect on their play. Participants are encouraged to wear their "play clothes" and bring a water bottle. If you like, bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it! This award-winning event is created in partnership with the Madison Public Library, and AnjiPlay, and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.
All events are free to attend. In the event of inclement weather,
