21TRA576 Developing Playful Practitioners in Early Years Education
This webinar will explore practical strategies for developing skills in the area of play and playfulness. Much of the recent focus on play in both research and in practice is on how and why children play, but how practitioners develop their own skills as ‘playful players’ is equally as important. Becoming a playful practitioner takes practice and skill, and this webinar aims to equip early years teachers and practitioners with those skills to become playful practitioners and to embed playful moments into their daily lives.
