Adult support, encouraging co-operative play with new friends in the home corner, would have met her needs more effectively. In contrast, Amadur would have benefited, in terms of well-being and involvement, from adult support for ongoing play outdoors.

Additionally, these theorists foreground the essential role of the adult or more competent child, who provides leadership and guidance to the child through interaction (Raban et al. 2003). Social constructivists foreground children’s learning, including their playful learning, as they take on roles as social partners with adults and with more competent peers.
