Young children's play and creativity

The Open University

Course Information

This Young children’s play and creativity module at The Open University considers how other children and adults impact on the play decisions and creative choices children make.

You will learn about how children express their ideas and interests through play and consider how children participate and are included in play and creative experiences. You will explore how children express their preferences through their play choices and the significance of creative spaces in following their interests.

What you will study

The module is organised into three blocks of study. The first block concentrates on young children’s play and creative experiences, the second explores the role of the adult and their influence on children’s play and creativity and the third block considers what play and creativity might look like in the future through debate and research.
