This chapter explores the ways in which adults' decision-making through pedagogic leadership and children's interpretation of the physical and social environment frames children’s playful experiences in early childhood. Elsewhere, I introduce these concepts with the specific focus on children's negotiation tactics (Arnott, 2018) and creative play (Arnott & Duncan, 2019); and I argue that these elements of experience are nestled in a Pedagogic Culture which children and practitioners inhabit in early childhood education. This chapter consolidates my interpretation of practitioners' and children's responsive planning and learning experiences as embedded in a Pedagogic Culture.
