Part of our Unpacking Children’s Play Series
Ever wonder why children play the way they do? In children’s play they have opportunities to explore, engage and experiment with their ideas and beliefs of the world around them. Many of our programs have shifted to play based learning offerings to the children we work with to expand their learning. This series takes a closer look at the learning taking place in Block and Construction Play, Imaginative and Dramatic Play and Rough and Tumble Play. Each of the sessions in the series build upon each other through research and reflective practice and will offer ideas for you to explore within your centre.
Session 1 - Block and Construction Play
In our classrooms we ensure that children have a large, open area filled with different blocks, small world items and props that link to children’s interests, experiences, and developmental skill sets. In having these materials available children are growing their problem solving, mathematic, continuity and permanence skills.
