Einstein Quotation

About This Primary Resource

A beautifully designed typographic poster featuring the following inspirational and though provoking quote from Albert Einstein:

“Play is the highest form of research”.

This is part of a series of famous quotes relating to children and childcare that we have designed for parents, teachers and early years practitioners. They would look fantastic displayed at home or in your school or early years setting. They would work really well displayed in a frame as part of a quote of the week / month feature in your staff room. If you have a relevant quotation that you would like one of our designers to work on then please get in touch.

    this is awesome – its a simple yet such a valuable lesson – we use it in learning setting for adults to help them appreciate you don’t have to be too serious and when you let yourself go learning is infinitely more powerful – thank you so much for allowing this download.

    A great quote

  3. Paul Jones

    This quote is from NV Scarfe, who wrote these words and then quoted Einstein in his article, Einstein’s quote is more complex “The desire to arrive finally at logically connected concepts is the emotional basis of a vague play with basic ideas. This combinatory or associative play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought”. Personally prefer Scarfe’s version, but he is not as famous, maybe why the source gets mis-quoted repeatedly. Sorry folks.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!
