Well, I've not come across it as a theory for learning, but it means exactly what you say, when literally translated. I would think it more a rule of thumb than a fully fledged theory, but I'm not an encyclopaedia!

 

I would think let them play but be there to support/extend would be fair interpretation... anyone?

one of my hand-outs from uni describes this as the Nativist approach , advantages are:

Adults value observing children and can offer the right resources and activities for the childs stage of development;

Children can make choices,explore,try things out and make errors without having a sense of failure;

Adults are able to follow the childs lead and are sensitive to the child;

disadvantages are:

adults might hold back too much from interacting with the child because of fears of damaging the child's natural development;

children might be under stimulated because adults are waiting for signs of readiness to elarn,they might not be shown how to do something;

Children from different cutures or with special educational needs might be labelled 'unready' and not given support at the right time.

 

don't know if that helps or not, but suggest you look in Tina Bruce and caroline meggitt Child care and Education book (Hodder and Stoughton), (2002), chapter 2,
