Play is the foundation of all learning in childhood. Healthy development is dependent on the opportunities presented to children in responsive, inclusive, play-based programs. Observation is a valuable tool for understanding and interpreting play and the holistic development of children. Historical and current theories and research will explore how the early childhood educator fosters the development of creativity and emergent literacy through play.
