The “Theory of Loose Parts: An important principle for design methodology, 1972” was developed by an architect, Simon Nicholson in the 1970’s. He stated that children need loose, moveable parts to extend their imaginations and thinking: “In any environment, both the degree of inventiveness and creativity, and the possibility of discovery are directly proportional to number and kinds of variables in it.”  – A+ applies this approach as a key part of our teacher training.
