Event description

Description

Facilitated by: Pop Up Play Adventures


Don't miss this once in a lifetime (possibly!) opportunity to see three distinguished British playworkers from Pop Up Adventure Play present a workshop on the amazing benefits of play. The workshop will be of great interest to (and not so early) childhood educators, park and rec staffers, children's librarians, nature and forest educators, play therapists, parents, and anyone interested in livable and child-friendly environments.

The workshop will focus on providing a solid foundation to discuss play’s distinct qualities and benefits, emphasizing those related to whole-child learning, health and development. By clearly distinguishing children’s self-directed play from adult-led activities, we will outline ways to support children’s processes without intervening, and explain simple and immediate ways to improve any environment for play. Working from a strong foundation in the adventure play movement and playwork, we offer a uniquely engaging and informative approach to the subject - and we include time for participants to play!

Participants are also encouraged to join in on the day of play taking part at Boyle Community Center the following day (Aug 1st) where a massive display of loose parts and adventure fun will be available to the public.
