Structured play can improve social inclusion

Structured playtimes can help to boost social inclusivity and give children the skills needed to develop friendships in the playground, a new study has found. Funded by UK play specialists, Sovereign Play Equipment, and delivered by not-for-profit organisation, Chuckle Productions, schools throughout the UK could benefit from the study, which has discovered that giving children access to a structured lunchtime provision could have a positive impact on their social skills, as well as increased confidence, problem solving, and more.
