express the full range of emotions, and to regulate anxiety and behavior using a teacher-caretaker mediated approach. This course presents the developmental spectrum of play and the manner in which play supports the formation of self-regulation, provides opportunities for children to experience agency, and is self-affirming. Play also addresses all areas of development simultaneously and is spontaneous and intrinsically motivated without the need for teacher-directed tasks. We will examine these themes as concept and practice. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to discuss challenges you may encounter related to children with whom you are working.
