Play at the Center of the Curriculum is a resource for those who want to engage children in a developmental zone where children and teachers are learning. Current and future teachers are guided in methods of supporting children’s progress through play.

This book carefully blends theory and practice. As seasoned teachers, we demonstrate how to draw both the methods and the content of a successful curriculum from children’s play. We interweave anecdotes of children’s play, theories of play and development, and instructional strategies that place play at the center of the curriculum.
