Playful Pedagogy: A guide to getting started

pdf (978.42 KB)

Playful learning indoors and outdoors is a part of Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence, much-valued by early years practitioners, teachers and sector partners, as well as children. Active Learning in the Early Years (2007), Building the Ambition (2014) and Realising the Ambition: Being Me (2020) all recognise the need for children to have a curriculum that ensures sufficient time for children to play uninterrupted. This document aims to support and underpin Realising the Ambition: Being Me and to embed a consistent, qualitative approach to play pedagogy that will deliver the practices and benefits of a kindergarten stage.
