There is a growing and well-researched recognition of the need to develop the early-years curriculum and pedagogy though play-based learning. In addition, there is a well-established principle that teaching and learning should begin 'where the child is'. This book is centred around these two principles.

Learning Through Play is an essential handbook for early-years practitioners on how to develop their understanding and practical applications in all early-years settings. It is an ideal training manual which speaks to both the early-years trainee and the experienced practitioner who is looking to improve their own practice and understanding, and that of colleagues.

Chapters support:

An understanding of play and its role in learning

An understanding of the role of the adult in the pre-school setting

The development of practitioner's skills in providing effective learning and development through quality play

The developing and planning of the curriculum and learning environment
The development of reflection and informed action in early-years settings
Managers, and those who hope to become managers, in developing good practice across their setting

Key features include Professional Development Activities. Some are for individual completion; others are for completion by your setting's team (but can be adapted for individual's use). Each chapter can be worked through as a discrete unit. This is a fully comprehensive and user-friendly guide for all who are keen to encourage the pre-school child's learning and development through play-based activities, giving the reader the tools with which to evaluate and develop their own practice and that of others.
