Across the lifespan, play serves a pivotal role in our development and learning. And while for the most part development unfolds in a predictable and logical set of stages and sequences, there is much we can do through play, to ensure happier and healthier children. This webinar will provide a context for seeing the power of play and how it is necessary for success in school and in life. Recommended practices and research on how to support children’s play will be provided.

Objectives:



  • Better understand the importance of play, exploration, and early experiences on development and learning

  • Use common play milestones and states as a guide to scaffold children’s ability to interact with objects and others

  • Analyze and evaluate a child’s current level of development and zone of proximal development when it comes to the stages of play

  • Deepen their commitment to fostering strong relationships with children and help them thrive by expanding the richness and complexity of their play
