Enhancing early learning and care work through playful professional practice
from By Glory Ressler
We all recognize the genuine joy of engaging with children in play; this is what motivated many of us to work in early care and education in the first place. Sadly, I have noticed that playfulness rarely makes an appearance in our adult interactions. This is understandable, given the high levels of engagement, professionalism and work ethic demonstrated in our field. We understand the importance and impact of what we do and, therefore, take our work seriously. However, I have personally witnessed the negative impacts of too much seriousness and not enough play.
