The importance of planning for intentional teaching and assessment in a play-based classroom
“This course should be mandatory for all teachers.
If you have any queries about play based learning, or feeling like it’s just too daunting, this course gives you a clear direction, and makes it seem possible and oh so necessary.
If you can get any senior management to do the course, they present it in such a professional manner it may be what they need to be convinced!”

- Discuss and practice key strategies for scaffolding children’s learning through play
- Work with experienced facilitators to understand how to identify the
learning occurring through authentic play opportunities
