Abstract: Wood (2004) identified a conflict between the importance and use of play between policy development and policy implementation within early years education. With an increase in national play policies and strategies across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, a similar conflict between policy development and policy implementation could affect a range of professionals who work with children using play (play therapists, playworkers, educators, etc.). This presentation, based on a perception of choice from a child’s perspective, offers a choice continuum based on Self Determination Theory (Deci and Ryan, 1985) to support professional practice in play across different domains.
