“Play is the way most humans, but especially young children, make sense of their world. Play based learning is an important way to develop active learning. Active learning means using your brain in lots of ways.”
  • The Early Years Learning Framework is an early childhood curriculum framework, which will guide early childhood educators in developing quality, early childhood education programmes. It has been developed collaboratively by the Australian and state and territory governments with substantial input from the child care and early learning sector and early childhood academics.
  • The Early Years Learning Framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning. The framework also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development. In addition, the framework has a focus on successful transition to formal schooling.

 Play Based Learning utilising the Early Years Learning Framework

“The essence of creativity is Problem Solving. Freedom in play allows children develop their skills in problem solving.”

When children play, they:

  • Explore the world – natural and social
  • Develop and practise social and language skills that may be more complex than in everyday activities
  • Expand and challenge their physical skills
  • Experiment with new ideas including symbolic competence required for formal learning
  • Enhance their self-confidence
  • Think and express themselves creatively
  • Respond to experiences with or without language
  • Develop their sense of self and identity

Play Based Learning teaches:

  • Tenacity
  • The ability to take risks
  • Learning through failure in a non-judging environment
  • Creating these characteristics into a child’s personality that will help them in their future
