It is essential that all home-based professionals working with children understand and encourage learning through play and activities. All children have the right to play and it is important that childcare practitioners promote and value this right, enabling children to achieve their maximum potential. This book is invaluable for all students of the Diploma for Home-based Childcare, and for all practising childminders and nannies who are looking for fresh new ideas and advice on how to encourage the learning of children in their care through play.

'What an excellent book! As newly qualified childminders we found in it a wealth of practical information that will assist us in the everyday running of our business.' Carrie and Gavin Ford, Happy Haven Childminding 'A book full of ideas from first-hand experiences, and a great reference book for use when planning activities. Many reward-system ideas are included to help combat behaviour problems. I particularly liked the ideas for games and activities being categorized by age of the child.'
Julie Hodgson, Childminder

'This is a very useful reference book for anyone completing any training relating to childminding. I wish I had a copy when I was working towards my Level 3 qualification in early years care and education. I would recommend it to anyone looking to increase their knowledge about children's learning - especially though play.'

Susanna Dawson, Child Care magazine
