Links to Theorists:
- This learning experience can be linked to Steiner’s theories. He believes that children need free, creative play to develop their spirit, bodies, and minds.
Learning Through Play:
- Having a home corner available for your children’s play is very important as it encourages ‘real life’ play and situations for the children role play and re create.
- Children can use their own past experiences to create their own play, socialise with their friends, communicate their ideas and express their feelings and emotions.
- Home corner play allows children to ‘act out’ certain situations that they may have found difficult or challenging, and allows them to come up with a solution.
- Home corner play also promotes socialisation, communication and conflict resolution skills.
- Children are able to substitute play objects for real life objects such as using a block as a phone.
- Home corner play also promotes an interest in family life and helping parents to do ‘real life’ chores at home, increasing confidence and independence.
- Home corner allows children to organise their own play and hand our different roles of play to their peers.
