The Treasure Basket and Heuristic Play promote extraordinary capacities of concentration, intellectual brilliance and manipulative mastery for babies and young children. The approach appears deceptively simple as it suggests offering natural and household objects to babies and toddlers, which can transform their learning. However, it is based on much more complicated research into how babies learn, the principles of learning, research evidence, and the author’s own personal experience of working with the under 3s.
This book provides:
- a new approach to understanding and providing for the play and learning of the under 3s
- accessible explanations about what babies do and how this links with later conceptual thinking
- practical ideas and activities for use in the nursery or at home.
This book will be indispensable for anyone working with the under 3s.
