Exploring Learning: Young Children and Blockplay
Description1I feel this book would be valuable to all childcarers. It is well worth the time you can spare for a first read, and would make a good "dip-in" reference book for the future. The study described is set in a school, but consideration of pre-school groups is also made. Childminders could easily adopt the ideas presented for play within their own homes and encourage them within those of the children also. The value of parental involvement is strongly emphasised' - Who Minds
`The book is highly recommended particularly for early years teachers and teachers in training where the findings and general comments will give a good underpinning to classroom practice' - Early Years
In this book, the authors present an interpretative account of a piece of collaborative action-research into children's blockplay during a three-year project. Children from three to seven years, early years teachers, nursery nurses, and two members of staff from the Froebel Institute College, Roehampton Institute, all acting as participant observers, shared in the discovery of the blockplay.
