  • Socialisation refers to the skills, behaviours and values that children develop to enable them to interact and mix with others and behave in a way that is socially acceptable
  • For babies and younger children, interaction will be primarily with adults
  • As children get older, they will want to interact with other children more, firstly playing alongside them and then playing cooperatively (see Parten’s Stages of Play)
  • The Early Years Practitioner can support socialisation by:
    • Modeling how to play and acceptable behaviours
    • Acknowledgement and praise (e.g. when a child first shows signs of cooperative play etc.)
    • Planning and implementation of play activities
    • Promotion of empathy and understanding
