Inclusive Play
Practical Strategies for Children from Birth to Eight

Second Edition

July 2011 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This extremely practical and child-focused book gives you the tools you need to make sure all the children in your care are included and involved in the play opportunities of your setting.

Inside the Second Edition, new content includes:

  • Consideration of the early years curricula across the whole of the UK
  • A new chapter on risk and challenge in play
  • New case studies
  • International examples
  • Full coverage of the Birth to Eight age range
  • Consideration of inclusive play from a children's rights perspective

A key book for those in practice, and underpinned by sound theory, this book will help you encourage and support inclusive play throughout your setting; it is packed with activities for you to try, ideas for small changes to make that can have a big impact and clear guidance on writing a play policy.

With a focus on appreciating children as individuals, this book is essential for all early years practitioners and those studying early years at any level.

A clear and easy to read text, which includes many very practical suggestions and presents a coherent view of good practice.

This book will be really useful as a recommended text as we currently have one course on the Foundation Degree in Early Years which covers inclusion. Another course focuses on play so this book will be really useful for that course too. The students who have looked at it already like the fact that it is practical and useful for giving them real strategies to use in the setting.

I think this is a good read for students with just the right amount of theorestical underpinning.
