Each of these scholars considers, from their own theoretical standpoint, the ways that young children's play contributes to their learning and development. The chapters cover a variety of theoretical positions, demonstrating that the process of 'engaging' with the theory and practice of play can take many forms.
The chapters cover a wide range of contexts, from child-led activity in informal settings to the more formal practice of school-based learning. A range of theoretical viewpoints of play are considered and related to the experiences of today's families, children and educators across different educational settings.
Engaging Play offers an insight into the pedagogical play discourse of twenty-first century early childhood education, and in doing so offers an informative reading experience for students, researchers and policy makers alike.
