  • Livola, Linda (2016)
    The aim of this study was to find out what kind of experiences the teachers at the nursery have in participating children's free play and to find out how important play is for children. The method was qualitative and the material consisted of interviews with educators in a day care group in Helsinki, and non - participant observation which I wrote down in an observation diary. The most important outcome of the study was that teachers needed in free play to support and develop children's language. Another result was that the children's social skills are strengthened in play when children play together. Then they acquire some experience on how to resolve conflicts and how to get along with everyone. It can therefore be concluded that educators are needed in the free play to help children to achieve these skills.
