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 with an emphasis on practical application and self-awareness. Guidance is also provided on the management of play-based learning in an early years setting.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; and, 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.
