Early Childhood Quotes: Vygotsky

1.  Human learning presupposes a specific social nature and a process by which children grow into the intellectual life of those around them. Lev Vygotsky

2.  In play, the child is always behaving beyond his age, above his usual everyday behaviour; in play he is, as it were, a head above himself. Play contains in a concentrated form, as in the focus of a magnifying glass, all developmental tendencies; it is as if the child tries to jump above his usual level. Lev Vygotsky

3.  A child’s play is simply a reproduction of what he has experienced, but a creative reworking of the impressions he has acquired.  Lev Vygotsky
