Enriching parent-child play through supported play groups to foster children's self-regulation: Protocol for a randomised control trial

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Self-regulation is an important target in early childhood given robust evidence of broad associations with immediate and later-life outcomes, and is thus considered a foundational ability. While research demonstrates the impact the home learning environment has on children's development, there is little guidance for parents to engage in behaviours that promote children's self-regulation development. This protocol presents an intervention program sought to address this gap, enriching parent-child play through supported play groups to foster early self-regulation abilities. The intervention presented here offers a means to effectively, yet efficiently, intervene in non-formal learning contexts.
