Theme:  Developing through Play

Play is the surprising right that children have, it’s the twinkle in their eyes and the most desired occupation of children!  How we play influences our learning and character.  Play contributes to holistic development, happiness, harmonious relationships and the healing and health of a child. As adults we need to ensure that there are stimulating, safe and sustainable ‘places’ for children to occupy!  This workshop explores the value of play and our responsibility in enabling it.
