Engaging Children in Play


It is often a challenge to continue to come up with exciting and inspiring play spaces week after week. The aim of this book is to support early childhood educators in creating a stimulating environment by using what is already available in the setting. Being resourceful and creative with what you have also means you don't need to spend a fortune to create an engaging learning environment.

  • Contains detailed photographs of role play areas, small world scenes, fine motor activities and much more, each accompanied by short captions explaining how achievable it is to take provision to the next level by using everyday resources and getting inside the mind of a child.
  • Highly practical – shows how to create outstanding provision rather than telling you how to do it, includes lists of resources needed plus a challenge section with ideas on how to extend the activity and links to the EYLF and NQS.
  • Also features key questions for educators to ask themselves about each area of their provision, enabling them to reflect on the needs of the child across all areas of learning.

This book would be an ideal resource for students undertaking studies in early childhood, such as the Certificate III or Diploma of Children’s services.
