                                                  The benefits of a construction area. 


 Construction play involves manipulating one or multiple elements of the play environment to construct something new. This may involve all sorts of construction methods, such as stacking, assembling, disassembling, sorting or moulding, to name but a few.

Construction in the early years develops all types of skills and behaviours,for example:

  • the physical skills necessary to manipulate and control a chosen toy or material
  • problem solving skills
  • the ability to plan the use of materials to see a design idea become a reality
  • the ability to test ideas
  • perseverance in the face of construction challenges
  • working with others, team work behaviour necessary to successfully and collaboratively construct
  • complete a task together
