What a great event! It was fabulous to meet almost 100 other people from 8 countries that do playwork in such a wide variety of ways! I learned that what I do is called “play ranging”, because I take my gear with me on the road, instead of hosting an adventure playground. It was awesome to know that what I do is actually a “thing”! About 3/4 of the attendees made a presentation of some sort, so there was lots of sharing and learning and business cards exchanged.
Came home with lots of photos, pages of notes, and even got to help with some construction at the Parish School’s Adventure Playground.
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!
I am super excited to be going to the Playwork Campference in Houston this coming February! I have just completed the Playworker Development Course and the Campference will be a great opportunity to meet others working on the course as well as *real* playworkers who actually do this stuff for a living!
