Outline

This programme is designed to dramatically improve outcomes for children during lunchtime and throughout the school day. It focuses on providing positive and creative play opportunities linked to the latest research in child development and neuroscience.

 

Description

The decline in play at home has meant that play at school lunchtimes has become increasingly crucial for children’s mental health and well-being. Play deprivation symptoms such as aggression, poor social skills and anxiety are becoming more common. Play is one of the key criteria for healthy brain development and it is vital that children are given time, space and resources to play. This training is designed to help adults improve, extend and support play opportunities for children.

 

Outcomes

This course will enable you to:

  • Understand the importance of play during school lunchtimes.
  • Understand the vital role of the adult in supporting play.
  • Learn practical methods for supporting play.
  • Experience a range of practical activities and games to use at lunchtime.

 

Cost: £50 per delegate.

Refreshments included.
