Share this event:

Pop-Up Adventure Play have teamed up with A Little Patch of Earth Preschool will be in Newhall, CA with Special Guest, Grant Lambie. They will be delivering two days of workshops and Pop-Up Adventure Playgrounds, and will be inspiring a community of adults to support child-directed play.

This workshop will be delivered on Day Two (March 9), followed by a Pop-Up Adventure Playground which everyone is invited to:

This workshop focuses 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!  This workshop is intended for a broad audience, including those whose direct experience of play is limited.

This workshop includes:
~ What we mean when we say 'play' - essential terms and definitions
~ An invitation to play, followed by group reflection
~ Children's need to play, and the landscape of children's lives today
~ Not 'unstructured', but 'self-structured' - what makes children's free play so special?
~ The power of 'yes' - tools for rethinking risk and challenge
~ Advocacy and explanation - encouraging meaningful engagement with parents
~ Taking play home - applying the essentials of a playwork approach in any setting

This workshop is suitable for everyone.
