“Play provides a fundamental learning process for children, allowing them to expand their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world. It allows them to test their abilities, use initiative, take risks and make mistakes without fear of failure. Children’s learning through play is broad ranging and crucially is not fixed to adult expectations of what should be achieved by children. The motivation for play, exploration and discovery comes from the child him or herself rather than from any outside reward. It is particularly important that children with disabilities are enabled to play as fully as possible and that play providers actively plan to ensure that their provision is accessible to them – not just physically but in terms of attitude, atmosphere and flexibility”.
