Event description

Description

If we think about reading as a playful act, we’re more likely to have children who are not only keener to read, but actually who read with more imagination and more personal input.”

- Dr Vivienne Smith

This year, we are partnering with NHS Health Scotland and looking at the role of play for babies and young children.

We'll be exploring the impact of playful parenting and why play is important for language as well as showcasing the many benefits of physical play for health and wellbeing and exploring opportunities for working together across disciplines. We will be focussing especially on:

  • How play supports language development
  • How play benefits child development, both physically and emotionally
  • The importance of outdoor play and it’s benefits and opportunities
  • Digital play
  • The influence of gender on play



The day will also include workshops and creative skills sessions including innovative new practice.

It is possible to request payment by invoice. Select this option under "Payment Method."
