'Play IS the Child’


                                 ‘Play IS the Child’

The role of the adult in a high quality learning environment

Play is often undervalued as frivolous and something children do when they have done their 'work' instead of the inspiring learning ‘tool’ it is. Through a range of play types, including risky play, children will learn about this exciting world full of discoveries when given the time, space and a level of freedom. We will explore the difference between high quality interactions and, often well intentioned, interference and share how the practitioner can provide a motivational and stimulating learning environment through providing simple resources.
