Playwork & Every Child Matters

In the chapter ‘Playwork and Every Child Matters’ Lesli Godfrey considers playwork for school age children and its response to ECM, placing the current profile of playwork in its historical context.

She explores the challenges of playwork being increasingly located in settings and environments that do not chime with the professionally desired principle of ‘freely chosen, personally directed, intrinsically motivated play’, suggesting nevertheless that there are positive opportunities for playwork and for children.
