Welcome to our Lab

We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the

 University of Toronto, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.



Great news to see our continuum of play-based learning featured in the just released Early Years Study 4! Take a look at chapter 2, "Play With Purpose," to read about the value of play-based learning in Canada's early childhood education.  

Play-based learning reaches the University of  Wisconsin-Madison! Click here to read about a community workshop for Wisconsin's early childhood educators, "Expanding Notions of Play," led by Dr. Pyle and in collaboration with UW−Madison School of Education's Wisconsin Center for Education Research. 

Dr. Pyle and Right To Play International share how play-based learning helps children develop, learn, and explore their world.
