Playing or learning?

Saturday, February 4, 2023 13:30 - 15:00

Is playing the same as learning, and does the terminology matter? Join us for a discussion around what play and learning really means in the early years, how playful interactions impact children and who has the right to play.

Discussion points:

  • Playful interactions
  • Statutory and non-statutory guidance
  • Children’s rights
  • School readiness 
  • The impact language has on children, educators and the status of the sector
  • Parents’ understanding of early years
  • The positioning of early years in wider education
