The Importance of Play and Fun for Children’s Wellbeing

Having positive, enjoyable playtimes makes the world of difference to children. We cannot underestimate the importance of wellbeing arising from play and laughter. Jenny will discuss how co-operation, inclusion, community and belonging can be nurtured through play and playground activities.  Children can learn and play traditional and new games to support better learning, friendships and teamwork. Jenny will discuss how everyone can have their own interests in a busy, zoned playground.

 

“Those who play, rarely become brittle in the face of stress or lose the healing capacity for humour.”  Dr Stuart Brown, founder, National Institute for Play.
