The training methodology (IO2) on play-based learning is a teaching method that comprises the principles and methods used by preschool teachers to enable children learning through play. The methodology is based on guidelines, a set of principles that will provide directions to teachers to enhance children’s understanding and linguistic production through the use of the play in preschools. The main sections of the guidelines are:

  1. the concept of play-based methodologies and play;
  2. the role of teachers: direct and indirect teachers’ intervention in play;
  3. essential aspects that make symbolic play a source of learning and developing linguistic skills in childhood
  4. correct adoption of play in preschools:
    • design the space
    • materials
    • time for playing
