What kinds of influences, pressures, and needs might they be responding to? Further, what arguments might be made to counter “prescriptive curricula and teacher-directed pedagogical approaches” and what reasons might be given for an alternative approach such as “child-initiated play and experimental learning with the active support of teachers”? Play Schools Building on the momentum established by Johnson’s play-based curriculum mentioned above, an innovative approach to educating children called the Demonstration Play School appeared in the early part of the twentieth century at the University of California.

Access to play spaces Example of research: Gaining access to quality play spaces is a second barrier impacting opportunities for play in America. Grow et al. (2008), in research conducted for the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington, studied three major cities in the US. They examined factors related to two sources of physical activity for youth: active use of recreation sites and active transport to recreation sites. Eighty-seven parents of children and one hundred twenty-four matched pairs of parents and adolescents in three US cities reported on youths’ active use of, proximity to, and walking/biking to twelve recreation sites and on neighborhood walkability and safety.

The cognitive effects of symbolic play are profound and include enhanced abstract thought (Saltz, Dixon & Johnson 1977), symbolic representation (DeLoache 2002), perspective taking (Youngblade & Dunn 1995), creativity (Russ, Robins, & Christiano 1999), memory (Newman 1990), intelligence (Johnson, Ershler, & Lawton 1982), language (Pellegrini & Galda 1993), and literacy (Nicolopoulou, McDowell & Brockmeye 2006).
