Learning Through Play
This video is part of the series The Kindergarten

The video Learning Through Play should reinforce the kindergarten teacher's and parents'; belief that play is a "solid foundation for learning" (Prescott in Jones and Reynolds, 1992). 

Hopefully it will also be a way to encourage the commitment of adults to promoting and supporting children's play by giving them reasons and ways to do so. It aims to increase their awareness of the different roles they can play to help children become competent players. 

Content of the video 

In this video, you will hear teachers and faculty members comment on what play is, identify different types of play behaviours and suggest ways to help children become master players. Clips of children at play and interviews with children are also included.
