This chapter examines the significance of professional development about loose parts within the workforce of educators within an outside-school-hours care setting in Australia. The project used an ethnographic approach to guide the action research approach. The educators used their observations of children’s interactions that they collected on a daily basis as the data about play and playwork. The findings from this project provided educators with deeper insights about facilitating an environment with loose parts and linking play types and playwork theory to the curriculum framework used in outside-school-hours care services – My Time, Our Place – Framework for School Age Care in Australia.
