About this module

We are delighted to have worked with Ben to produce this high quality video training. Ben is passionate about how children's brain development affects their play, learning and development.

This module is part of the complete Play, Nurturing and Curiosity Course. In this module we look at the profound importance of play for children. From evolutionary biology to brain growth, emotional well-being and even life expectancy the module explore play not as an optional extra to childhood but as a fundamental foundation for all aspects of development. It is easy to say that Play is good for children but maybe what we need to be saying is that Play is profound, essential and life changing. This module gives us the knowledge to not just provide stimulating play opportunities for our children but to be able to stand up for a child’s right to play in a society that often undervalues this vital process.

Topics covered

  • What is play?
  • Importance of play
  • The bio-chemical response to play
  • The physical benefits of active play
  • The adult role in play
  • What happens when children are deprived of play
