Early Childhood Play Matters

Early Childhood Play Matters provides the framework for educators to focus on the core role of building relationships with children and implementing a rich intentional play based curriculum.

It is full of practical ideas on setting up the learning environment (indoors & outdoors), how to plan and document to save time, and how to provide rich provocations for learning through play.

It contains a full-colour section of photographs, and templates for planning, assessment and reporting activities. Organisational ideas and resources are provided, along with a bibliography for further reference and advice.
