Can’t believe it’s already August. We’ve had some great adventures so far this summer – hope you are too! Thanks to Roots & Boots Forest School, Indian Point Young Naturalists’ Club, University Childrens’ Centre at Dalhousie, and WJCC Summer Camp, among others, for hosting loose parts play in all kinds of environments and play spaces!
It was great to see lots of folks were out supporting the Summer of PLEY events! I was able to take in a couple things on the last day, and got to meet Dr Brussoni, which was really cool. Check out Play Outside NS for more information on the PLEY project – Twitter – Facebook – web page.
T K Adventure Play is now accepting adventure play session bookings for dates through August 31 – Contact Us today to reserve your preferred date!
Can’t believe it’s already February, and I’m heading off to #Campference2019 later this week! I am just finishing up my presentation and it’s always fun to poking back through photos to try and pick out the best ones to showcase loose parts at work – or is that ‘at play’?…
If you are interested to book a play date for the spring or summer, dates will become available on April 1, so mark your calendar!
It hasn’t been a busy winter for play dates, as the weather has provided us with an astonishing amount of ice on the ground. On the up side though, I have had several opportunities to present professional development programs to ECE and recreation staff in a few different venues around Halifax. Loose Parts 101 continues to be popular, but I’ve also developed a 2 hour module on ‘rough and tumble play’ at the request of an early learning centre. That module is now generally available to other centres.
Even more excited about #Campference2019 now, as my submission to be a presenter has been accepted! Still in the mode of not entirely sure what I can add to the overall Playwork conversation, so it’s pretty cool to find out other people – like, the Pop-Up Adventure Play people – think that I actually might!
