Description

As we are moving away from theme-based planning to an emergent approach to learning through play, which is in
alignment with Ontario’s Early Learning Frameworks, the way that we are working with children in the early learning and child care field is changing. This online webinar will support educators to explore what unstructured play is, the
importance and benefits to children, and how they can communicate this to fellow educators and families. The session will look at intentional, open-ended experiences and dispel the myth of it being a ‘free for all’.
