Research is being carried out by a variety of organizations – Play England, Play Scotland, Play Wales, KaBOOM! to name a few – and individuals throughout the world who are interested in play from a variety of perspectives including child development, physical and mental health, creativity and education. The ‘ologies’ are definitely involved in researching and advocating kids’ play.
