Conversation 2 – Play: Are our children getting enough?
December 4, 2020 - December 4, 2020
Play is the highest form of research, as Albert Einstein is said to have remarked. But even Einstein could not have predicted the ways in which children’s playtime would be squeezed in the 21st century. With family life increasingly busy and scheduled, opportunities for free play for children seem to be shrinking.
Join us as we discuss the social and environmental changes that are affecting children’s playtime, and learn about the international research supporting the push for more free, creative and imaginative play. We’ll ask whether play is becoming neglected or devalued, and if so, how we can reset the agenda to reprioritise it—at home, in the community and in early learning settings. Click here to register.
