However, Donald Winnicott and Kendall Walton believe that play is a theory which applies itself to many different areas of life, beginning in the infant years and progressing through adolescence into adult hood. The philosopher Walton focuses on the concept of imagining and ‘the game world.’ To Walton the game world consists of any time you enter into a game or a world of make believe. His focus is primarily on children and infants and the way they explore and make sense of the world through the medium of play. ‘Play in children is a way of understanding and exploring the world.’ (Walton, K. 1990). He believes that if we want to understand art and performance we should look to children for guidance.
Most of these programs are very similar and there is some differences between the programs as well. Some similarities in these programs are talking to the children, asking the children for advice on solving the problem, having the kids get up and move, and objects appear like magic. Some differences in these programs are Blue’s Clues, Barney and Yo Gabba Gabba all have a real person throughout the show, and Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi are animated the whole time. These programs encourage physical development by having kids move around, and also learning how to become more coordinated. When children begin to learn from the programs they watch, by taking what they watched and using it in their daily life.

From this the child will learn through play, using imagination, new and unusual ideas (originality), a variety of different ideas (productivity), problem solving and experimenting. Creativity it helps children to express feeling and ideas about people objects and events. This could be in the form of painting, drawing, collage, music, dance, woodwork, model making, sand and water with small world scenarios and miniature garden scenarios.
They felt that it was in the early years of development that children are evolving who they are as an individual. This led to the creation of a program centered on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery. In a supportive and endowing environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum. The Reggio Emilia philosophy is based upon these key components: children need to have the control over the direction of their learning; children must be able to learn through the participation of moving, seeing, touching, hearing, and listening. Children must also be permitted to explore and have infinite ways and opportunities to express themselves.
How do they influence current practice? Cognitive – Jean Piaget | Main points of theory Piaget’s theory is sometimes referred to as a “constructive approach” because he suggested that children constructed or built up their thoughts according to their experiences of the world around them. He uses the term ‘schema’ to refer to a child’s conclusions or thoughts. He felt that learning was ongoing process with children needing to adapt (hence Piaget’s term ‘adaption) | Explain how does this theory influence current practice? If a parent was expecting a baby and maybe the other child wasn’t happy about it, we as a setting we could do role play with the dolls making references to when you have a baby brother or sister you could help mummy, you can cuddle the baby etc.
