Play-based Learning Resources for Early Childhood Educators

We are all life-long learners, in so many ways. But, for children from birth to school age, it is very difficult to separate learning from play. The resource You’re Telling the Story is a great demonstration of this. It shows early childhood educators how they can explain to children what they have learnt or are learning, simply by observing each child at play. Other resources show how learning can occur through adventure, discovery, exploration and projects, all of which will probably just feel like play to the children involved. Planning with and for Children, Child Initiated Learning and Intentional Teaching are also popular resources which emphasise the process of learning through play.
