Children's Play in Child Care Settings

Free sample

How do children play in different kinds of child care settings? How do child care environments influence their play? How do special-needs children play in integrated and in segregated child care settings? How do adults influence play in child care environments? And what are the long term effects of children’s play in child care? These are among the questions addressed by the psychologists and educators who have contributed to this book.

Researchers will find Children’s Play in Child Care Settings to be a valuable review of current theory and research in this area. Practitioners will better understand the ways in which early childhood environments and early childhood educators can facilitate the play of young children in child care settings. And administrators will be able to draw upon the book in designing and implementing early childhood programs for special needs and non-special needs children.

Sharne Rolfe brings an excellent discussion of attachment principles, research and applications to an exceedingly important topic, the relationships between child care teachers/providers and young children. It is a important resource for the current and next generation of early childhood professionals and researchers, and it will be a key resource for the growing international discussion about child care teacher/provider and child relationships.'

particularly valuable in highlighting the crucial importance of taking a relationship-based approach when working with young children.'

This accessible and lively exploration of the importance of attachment for infants, young children and their parents, should be essential reading for all professional caregivers and for policy makers concerned with the mental health and well being of our future generation.'

Ruth Schmidt Neven, Director, Centre for Child and Family Development

In heated debates about whether childcare damages young children, attachment theory has been seen as anti-childcare'. Rolfe rethinks this perception, demonstrating instead that understanding attachment is essential to good childcare practice.

Rethinking Attachment offers a thorough explanation of attachment theory and explains how security, autonomy and resilience in young children can be promoted in childcare settings through a sound understanding of attachment principles.

With examples drawn from practice, Rolfe examines the relationships between children and their carers, between parents and carers, and between carers themselves. She also shows how secure attachment relationships with parents and carers influence transitions to childcare, preschool and school.
