Play is vital to children’s physical and mental health and development, and it happens when children follow their own ideas and interests, in their own way, and for their own reasons. Play provides opportunities for social interaction and physical activity, it can reduce children’s stress, promote wellbeing and creativity.

After the year of lack of space, freedom to follow their own ideas and play with their friends. It is vital that we provide the environment, resources and more importantly the understanding adults to allow our children to play in their space to their own agenda. This session will be an overview of what that could look like and how we can provide it.
