Learning Through Play

Research shows play-based learning has a positive and lasting impact on children’s learning, teaches them skills relevant to the 21st century.  Integrating learning and outdoor experiences, whether through play in the immediate grounds or adventures further afield, provides relevance and depth to the curriculum.  Early Years Practitioners and teaching staff use a play-based approach that involves both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning that encourages children’s inquiry through interactions that aim to stretch their thinking to higher levels.
