This is the third in a series of editorials written by Alison Prowle and Janet Harvell from the Centre for Early Childhood, University of Worcester, UK, on their experiences in the Dunkirk Refugee Camp in France. (Sadly, the camp burned down in April.) The authors explore how children in camps are being encouraged to play and through this, how they are developing resilience, learning new skills, making friends and enjoying a respite from the harsh realities of their lives.
