Play and early childhood pedagogies
Chapter 10 presents an evidence-informed discussion about children’s play and early childhood pedagogies. It discusses the role educators’ play in providing rich environments, resources and teaching strategies to promote children’s learning and development. The importance of children’s learning in nature is raised along with the importance of unstructured and risky play, fostering children’s imagination and creativity and the types of physical environments can support children’s play.
