Play enhances children’s learning, has a clear role in education and supports emotional
well-being, good mental health, creativity and social competence.

This course provides a focus on play as a powerful enabler for children and those that work with them and their families in developmental settings across social care, education and health. The theory and practice of children’s health, play and wellbeing has relevance to health care assistants in paediatric, midwifery and neo-natal as well as family support, portage, early years settings and wrap around care, support in school and therapeutic practices. Combining theory, practice and reflection, this programme will help you if you are planning to enter any of these professions that understand the importance of play.

Children are defined in the UK as up to their 18th birthday and some play work and play therapy supports children through to adolescence, especially those with a diagnosis of SEN. While this course has a focus on early years and young children, it acknowledges practice and theory with all children with SEND and behavioural conditions. All modules are underpinned by the evolving awareness and knowledge of the importance of children with SEN, emotional and behavioural development and safeguarding children.

While you are expected to be in employment, you will be supported to gain a placement as well as experience play work in other setting types.
