Progressing the Play Agenda
The first in a series of PlayBoard NI engagements within the Republic of Ireland focusing on enhancing play opportunities.
Date: Thursday 22 June 2023
Time: 11:00am – 12:30pm
Play is the main occupation of childhood (from birth through to the older years), providing children with opportunities to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially as well as developing lifelong skills such as creativity, imagination, self-confidence, self-esteem, and resilience. Every child, regardless of their background or community in which they live, has a right to play.
This Information Session begins a series of engagements planned throughout 2023 within the Republic of Ireland which aim to explore how we can collectively enhance play opportunities – through play advocacy, policy and strategy development, strategic connections, networking, training, and play delivery across a variety of environments and arenas.
Focusing on PlayBoard’s strategic work in the Republic of Ireland, this first session will showcase a number of approaches aimed at supporting the development of quality play opportunities for children and young people.
Who should attend?
This session will be of interest to a range of key stakeholders including government departments, councils, CYPSC, County Childcare Committees, community groups, school age childcare practitioners, sports bodies, schools, youth and play providers, and library and museum staff.
