Stretching boundaries through creative play

Facilitated by Play Scotland

Play should be at the heart of children’s everyday lives and experiences throughout childhood. Children’s well-being, safety, learning and social development, as well as their essential enjoyment of childhood, are affected by the extent and the quality of their opportunities to play.

By the same token, the cooperation of many different professionals and roles are needed to ensure a cohesive and effective approach. We want children to enjoy a healthy balance of structured and unstructured play in their leisure time. This workshop will look at the principles for creating imaginative, innovative, and stimulating play environments that will enrich the lives of children and young people.

Play Scotland is the National organisation for play in Scotland, working to promote the importance of play for all children and young people, and campaigns to create increased play opportunities in the community.
