This doctoral project was kindly funded by the prestigious Lego Foundation Cambridge Trust scholarship. I used two large-scale longitudinal datasets in Australia and Germany. Applying advanced statistical analyses, I provided strong empirical evidence for the importance of early play on children's language, mathematical, and mental health development. I also discussed the inclusivity of play for neurodivergent children and children from under-privileged backgrounds. You can find my thesis here

We also highlighted that the Ubuntu could be that the collective culture acts as the main contributing factor to the social benefits we have examined.
