Developing Play for the Under 3s Summary

Developing Play for the Under 3s: The Treasure Basket and Heuristic Play by Anita M. Hughes (Independent Chartered Educational Psychologist, UK)

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.

Developing Play for the Under 3s Reviews

'This book makes a positive and meaningful contribution to our work with the youngest of children. I would urge every Montessori setting with provision for babies and toddlers to buy a copy and start collecting, making and observing the benefits.' - Montessori International
