dc.description.abstract This handbook provides an overview of the importance of play in children's lives and guidelines for a supportive play environment. Play is defined using six criteria to identify play and non-play situations. The developmental interactionist philosophy of Early Childhood Education is explained to illustrate beliefs which support a play-based environment. Historical perspectives of play and research supporting the role of play in children's development are outlined. The importance of sufficient time for play is explained. Guidelines are included for a supportive physical environment and a culturally sensitive environment. The adult's roles in play are explained with examples of adult-child interactions which support and encourage play. Appropriate and inappropriate intervention techniques for adult involvement in play are examined. en
