Parents Concerns – Play Behaviours

What if my child plays alone?                                              child-alone  alone play

If other children are around and the child is mostly playing alone in Solitary Play keep an eye to see if you observe other types of play. Solitary play is one of 4 main stages of play that young children go through

See if they play a game that is separate from the others while being near.

  parallel play   This is called Parallel Play and is one of the stages of play to look out for in young children characterised by the children feeling that each has their own toys and ideas

associative playAssociative play is when a child is involved with others in talking borrowing and turn taking

Co-operative play comes later where they are very socially aware and developed in group settings they will be speaking and listening and sharing ideas   coperative play

Social interaction is a big thing for young children and they are mostly social little creatures.  If your child plays on the edges of a room or keeps to the other spaces or doesn’t like being in the company of other children or has issues with noisy play or crowds we may need to have a look at this more closely.
