Kindergarten and Play-Based Learning
Rights of the Child: Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range
of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities (Unicef)
Play-Based Learning
Natural response to the environment
When children are manipulating objects, acting out roles, or experimenting with
different materials, they are engaged in learning through play
Play allows them to actively construct, challenge, and expand their own
understandings through making connections to prior experiences, thereby opening
the door to new learning
Intentional play-based learning enables children to investigate, ask questions,
solve problems, and engage in critical thinking
Play is responsive to each child’s unique learning style and capitalizes on his or
her innate curiosity and creativity
Play-based learning supports growth in the language and culture of children and
their families. (CMEC, 2010)
The six principles of Early Childhood Education are as follows:
1. Early child development sets the foundation for lifelong learning, behaviour, and
health
2. Partnerships with families and communities strengthen the ability of early
childhood settings to meet the needs of young children
3. Respect for diversity, equity, and inclusion are prerequisites for honouring
children’s rights, optimal development, and learning
4. A planned curriculum supports early learning
5. Play is a means to early learning that capitalizes on children’s natural curiosity
and exuberance
6. Knowledgeable, responsive educators are essential

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
