Summary

In this second edition of Play in the Early Years, Marilyn Fleer provides a comprehensive introduction to pedagogy and play in early years education settings. Drawing on classical and contemporary theories, this text examines social, cultural and institutional approaches to play, and explores a range of strategies for successfully integrating play into early years and primary classrooms. Thoroughly revised to include the latest methods and research into early years development and learning, this latest edition features new material on intentional teaching, play as learning, digital play, and discipline-specific content including STEM, arts and sustainability. Two new chapters discuss post-structuralist and cultural-historical conceptions of play, and extended practical examples link pedagogical practice to the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum.
