Always the Cinderella of the education system, the significance of early
years has been seriously under-estimated. Play is the Way brings
together leading practitioners, policy-makers and academics to explain
how a coherent approach to early years – centred on positive relationships
and play – will not only result in better educational performance but in
greatly improved health and well-being for future Scottish citizens. They
challenge the deeply-ingrained cultural acceptance, throughout Scotland
and the rest of the UK, that formal instruction in the three Rs (reading,
’riting and ’rithmetic) should begin at the age of four or five – at least a
year before other European countries.
