We were joined by Dr Stella Louis and Julia Manning-Morton where we focused on the importance of play in the early years and why we shouldn’t always look for specific outcomes but recognise play as valuable in and of itself.
In the one hour session, Dr. Stella Louis and Julia Manning-Morton explored a number of areas relating to play, including the varying meanings of 'play' depending on a child's age, the role adults can take, how schemas, rules, etc, fit in, what a child's network for learning is, and much more.
