The Power of Play Part 1 focused on the impact of the environment and materials on play. We concentrated on the quality of toys and play materials rather than the quantity and the explored benefits open-ended materials have on fostering imagination early in life.
The Power of Play Part 2 will explore the role of both the child and the adult in play. When we play alongside a child, we’re invited into their world and can allow their thoughts, ideas and feelings to surface through play. Join us to learn more about how to make the most of play by empowering your child to take the lead and let play be about them, allowing them to transition to self-directed and independent play.
It is not essential to have attended the first workshop as we will offer a brief re-cap with all participants. This event is free of charge to HKA families and we will follow up with sign-up details soon.
