Abstract: 
Hurried and highly scheduled lifestyles among children are common, especially among developed
countries in East Asia such as in Singapore. Research data suggest that young people do not meet
daily activity guidelines that promote physical health. There is a cogent need to reconsider,
resurrect and reposition play in young people such that children can internalise the merits of play
and caregivers can recognise that play confers social-emotional outcomes that are valued by those
who invest in education. Data emanating from Singapore suggest very promising social-emotional
learning outcomes following a 10-week intervention programme conducted during school curriculum
hours.
