Therefore, social and emotional development can be supported by practice as adults play a key role in helping children to socialise and engage with others. Tassoni (2015) suggests that we need to start by making sure that we create the optimum conditions for children to socialise and there are many ways to do this within a setting depending on age, stage, and needs of the children who you work with. Play is a marvellous way in which children are able to explore their emotions and develop their social skills.

I believed that play is essential to children’s education that cannot be minimized and separated from learning.
