Play as a learning strategy in early childhood education for the full development of the child

Scientific Evidence Platform Under review Play as a learning strategy in early childhood education for the full development of the child

Currently, in early childhood education classrooms we can observe that a traditional methodology is used, where theoretical learning predominates and play is left in the background, which is only practised in the playground.

Play-based learning allows children to create knowledge in a more playful and active way, which contributes to the full development of their capacities. It also allows them to observe how they communicate with the world and helps them to create their own personality.


My argument is based on the following articles
