About the research
Research shows that young children learn too little in nurseries. Should creches then become little schools? "No," says pedagogue Simon Wemel (Arteveldehogeschool Ghent). "However, they can focus on 'learning by playing', because playing is the driving force in young children's development."
To inspire and support child supervisors in this, Simon and his colleague Ann Steverlynck created the book "The realm of play", with numerous practical examples. Let's play!
