The Centre for Play & Recreation is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom to develop an understanding of the role of children's play, informal education and activity-based learning throughout the life-cycle.

The centre, located in the Department of Education & Community Studies in the Faculty of Education & Health, has expertise in multi-disciplinary approaches to childhood, youth studies and education. It links theory and fieldwork in all aspects of play and recreation, from infancy to old age, across cultures and nations.
