We are once again reminded, this time, by the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, of the importance of play for children’s well-being. In their newly published report: The Power of Play – they seek to ensure that children will have the continued freedom to play – allowing them to ‘process the changing world around them’ and ‘build their resilience’. It goes on to conclude that ‘one of the best ways to support children’s wellbeing is giving them the freedom to play’. Going on to state that ‘children are the experts in play and adults should have the confidence to let children determine how they want to use play to make sense of a world that has changed beyond recognition over the last twelve months’. Those of us whose work is focused on early education do not need to be reminded of the power of play for children’s wellbeing and their education. Let’s make sure play continues to feature strongly in early years education and beyond.
