Abstract

Children engage in a variety of occupations throughout their day, including structured learning activities and spontaneous play. Many children spend at least part of their day with other children, either in childcare or preschool. While early childhood educators likely have identified objectives for structured activities, it is the spontaneous play and interactions that need further exploration. This study contributes to our understanding of children‚s occupations, particularly social participation, in a childcare setting.
