What is Play?

Our last post introduced the concept of play and play based learning in relation to the Early Years Learning Framework. This post links you to an article describing some of the agreed upon characteristics of play, and how play is a context for children’s learning. It also talks about some of the ways in which educators support children’s learning through play.

The article is written by Lennie Barblett, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education and Arts at Edith Cowan University. The article was published by Early Childhood Australia, a peak organisation in the field of early childhood education, in their journal Every Child.
