Play in Education, Development & Learning (PEDAL)

Welcome to the PEDAL Centre

PEDAL is the centre for research on play in education, development and learning. We conduct academic research into the role of play in children’s lives in order to inform wider practice and policy.

PEDAL is part of the Psychology, Education and Learning Studies Research Group at the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge. Our founding funder is the LEGO Foundation

Pedal Hub - online resources

PEDAL Hub is our online resource that helps parents, practitioners, teachers, NGOs and policy-makers locate authoritative play research as well as understand its practical implications.
