Play is a critical part of how a child learns and develops. In addition to bringing fun to children, playing is an effective way to cultivate their social and emotional growth.
Anji Play is an internationally recognised curriculum and approach originally developed for the public early childhood programmes of Anji County, Zhejiang Province, China. At the heart of Anji Play is the concept of True Play which seeks to return the right of self-determined play to children, and acknowledges the complexity of a child's ability to solve problems.
Bright Beginnings: The Power of Play in Early Childhood Education is the theme for the 2021 Singapore Early Childhood Education Chinese Symposium. The symposium will provide you the opportunity to explore the world of Anji Play, learn how play-based learning is applied in the Singapore context, as well as develop and reflect on your own practice with young children.
