PlayBoard NI are holding Play Awareness sessions for parents and carers.
This half-day Play Awareness session will strengthen parents understanding of play and its importance to the growth and development of their children. They will also gain practical ideas which they can incorporate into their homes or local community to enhance opportunities for play.
The session aims to help parents:
Better understand the importance of play for children and young people’s holistic health and well being.
Explore how play facilitates attachment and builds relationships between children and parents.
Have a greater understanding of the range of play types, their importance in terms of supporting growth and development; and how children and a variety of play types can be supported within home/community settings.
Explore the role of the adult parent/carer in the play process and how parents can best facilitate play in a way that meets their child’s needs.
Understand the importance of risk and challenge for the development of resilience, independence and life skills.
Gain practical play ideas that can be applied within the home and/or local community to enhance opportunities for play.
