Mildred Parten was one of the first to conduct extensive studies on children for the case of play. She supervised children between two and five years old for intense one minute periods. In these time frames, she could see the different children’s behavior and documented them accordingly. She noted that most of the play is by themselves, in the first four stages. The latter two are more extensive sets of play, and occur in older age groups which involve more interaction between children.
