How do I help families understand their child’s play?

Sharing the child’s learning and explorations with families is always exciting – they love to see what their little treasures have been getting up to in the course of the day. What is even more valuable, are those opportunities to share and extend as you build and strengthen home-school partnerships and bring families into the learning as partners. Our Schematic Play powerpoint is a tool for this purpose.

How to use this powerpoint:

  • Arrange a family information session and use this resource as a basis to explain and show what play behaviours look like.
  • Share a digital copy with families that they can use as a go-to resource to support their child at home.
