About Child's Play Magazine
Child's Play Magazine is designed to help parents, caregivers, teachers, and other people who work with children understand why it is so important for children to experience free-range activities and unstructured play, and to help them provide such opportunities for children. We hope that it will also help adults get in touch with their own playfulness!
It was first published in print beginning in 1983, and has been an online resource since 2015.
Child's Play Magazine is published by Life Media, an independently-owned, environmentally-conscious multimedia information publishing company, founded in 1976 and still owned and operated by the founding Priesnitz family. Our goal is to provide editorially independent, quality products, and a high level of service and integrity, in a way that minimizes our ecological footprint and respects all the inhabitants of Mother Earth.
Editor Wendy Priesnitz has over forty years experience as a journalist, editor, and author. And she is a pioneering advocate of self-directed, play-based, free-range learning.
