In this thesis will he found a clear commonsense, non-technical statement of the principles which should guide one in the selection, and care of permanent play materials for nursery schools.

The materials and methods presented hare grown out of experiments conducted for more than a decade in the Horace Mann School. The theories and practices are the outgrowth of many years of experience with all kinds and conditions of children and with teachers from the four quarters of the globe. Both theory and practice have undergone constant revision and reconstruction in the light of the varied experiences, and presentation in non-technical terms are the result of a desire to meet the needs of parents as well as class room teachers and to be of assistance to those in authority, when confronted with the problem of deciding upon equipment in nurseries and in schools for young children.
