A Spatio-Pedagogical Approach to Symbolic Play as Kindergarten Activity in Early Childhood.
Michalopoulou, Aikaterini
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v9 n2 p59-68 2001
Studied the symbolic play that occurs in activity corners set up around toy-objects in Greek kindergartens. Found notable differences in levels of symbolism and complexity of the play. Concluded that the most favored groups were those in which: (1) classroom space was polyvalent, permitting its informal re-organization; and (2) the teacher was an attentive observer who stimulated children.
