How do we define play? What do children learn through play? What does play consist of? What is involved in play? Structured vs. unstructured. So many theories and ideas are floating around about play and its role in children’s lives. Play is a right of every child and all children need time and space for free play every day. What does that look like in our centres?
How do we engage parents in the conversation about the intentionality behind play? We will have an opportunity to engage in discussion and reflect on different theories as well as look at how to communicate the message to families through documentation.
Change management and time management are becoming increasingly important within the early learning field and have taken our attention away from three of the most critical components of a quality early learning environment: time, environment, and play. This newly designed series will offer participants an opportunity to reflect on how time and schedules are implemented within daily practice, the environment from a child’s view, and how we are positioned to communicate the value of play to families.
Registration fee includes materials and nutrition break.
