Learning through play helps young children to learn and develop through doing and talking, the means by which young children learn to think.
Our setting uses the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance to plan and provide a range of play activities, which helps children to make progress in each of the areas of learning and development.
In some of these activities, children decide how they will use the activity and, in others, an adult takes the lead in helping the children to take part in the activity.
