Play for a Change
Subtitle: Play, Policy and Practice - A review of contemporary Perspectives
Stuart Lester and Wendy Russell
Play for a Change highlights the substantial and wide-ranging evidence of the significance of play in children's lives. Building on the work in the Children's Play Council's Making the Case for Play, this review offers a detailed analysis of the published research and literature that underpins contemporary understanding of the importance of play and how it relates to social policy and practice.
The review identifies three key strands:
- the policy-making context supporting children's play
- literature on the benefits of play and children's play patterns
- the provision for play and working with children.
Play for a Change is aimed at practitioners, academics, researchers, policy-makers concerned with children's well-being.
