PALMA, Míriam Stock; PEREIRA, Beatriz Oliveira  e  VALENTINI, Nadia Cristina. Guided play and free play in an enriched environment: Impact on motor development. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.177-185. ISSN 1980-6574.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1980-65742014000200007.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of guided play and free play in an enriched environmentintervention programs using motor skill development in kindergarten children. Seventy-one children attending kindergarten classes were assigned to two experimental groups and one control group. Participants performed the Test of Gross Motor Development-2 before and after the intervention period. Results revealed that both boys and girls in the guided play group showed motor skill improvement, whereas no changes were observed in motor development in the boys and girls assigned to the free play in enriched environment group, nor in those in the control group. These findings indicate that the teacher's role in the guided play intervention was crucial to help preschool children to improve their performance.
