Play for a change – Play, Policy and Practice: A review of contemporary perspectives

December 11, 2009 at 5:49 am Leave a comment

Play England has published perhaps the single most “comprehensive review of the evidence underpinning current thinking on play.”

It provides a detailed analysis of research and literature published since 2001 that underpins contemporary understandings of the importance of play and how this relates to social policy and practice.

Play for a change, by Stuart Lester and Wendy Russell of the University of Gloucestershire, is published in three formats: a 270-page full research report, a 60-page summary, and a 4-page introductory briefing paper. All are available to download here for free.

A big hat tip to Josh Leeger for the note about this incredible resource.
