This session will present findings from a pilot study exploring play and career development in the early years. Preliminary findings indicate strong alignment between how play manifests within Canadian early years frameworks and prominent career development principles. Findings contribute to a developing understanding of how play underpins and supports early career development within kindergarten and early learning environments.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Define play and examine its role within children's lives
  • Explore how early years curricula support children's learning and development
  • Demonstrate alignment between early years curricula and career development principles
