1-083 Recorded Webinar 
Embedding literacy in a play-based curriculum
Duration: Approx. 45 min
Literacy is an important part of the early childhood curriculum however, many parents (and some teachers too!) have perceptions of literacy rooted in traditional ideas about reading and writing.

This webinar has explored the broad and holistic view of literacy outlined in Te Whāriki and has discussed how children’s literacy development can be supported in a play-based curriculum.

In this webinar you will:

  • Gain an understanding of what literacy in ECE involves
  • Learn strategies to integrate literacy building experiences across the curriculum
  • Hear suggestions about how to allay parents’ concerns about reading and writing development 

Presented by Barbara Watson (PhD)
