Deslynne Roberts, Managing Director of Areté Consultancy, enlightened childcare professionals with her seminar ‘Share my World/ It’s not just child’s play’ last week at the Childcare Expo.
Following on from her success, she has kindly decided to provide Parenta readers with an insight into the seminar topics for this week.
Exploring the complexity of learning through play in everyday practice, there is a clear emphasis on the importance of purposeful engagement with children. This needs to be implemented by Early Years practitioners to reinforce the benefits for children’s learning and development. I’m sure you’re aware that children love to learn, but they can only do so when practitioners spare the time to engage with children, share their world and support play-based learning.
