CMAS Tutorial: Play Across Cultures

Children are masters of play.

It’s how they learn about culture, social norms, and language – and it provides endless opportunities for children to try out different roles, express themselves, and explore the world around them.

But you may have noticed that children from different cultures engage in play differently. This makes sense because there are differences in language, context, and social norms in different cultures – and these are all reflected in children’s play!

In the this tutorial, participants will have the chance to reflect on how play is different across cultures, and how we can encourage and foster all kinds of play variations in our CNC programs.

At the end of the tutorial, you’ll also find resources, references, a Facilitator Guide and Questions for Personal Reflection/Group Discussion so that you can easily facilitate your own team training.
