/_edit/Training/SOLITARY-PLAY.JPGSolitary play describes situations where children are playing individually and do not have any social contact with others. Solitary play is mostly seen in children under two, but older children may also be seen engaging in solitary play as they enjoy time alone to pursue their individual interests.

An environment set up for solitary play will have activities that are for one child only, such as finger painting, a sensory mat, or an individual sand tray. You need to provide spaces that are suited for one child to work at, such as a small table with one chair, a cushion with an activity or an easel.
