Understanding Play Theory - Webinar

Nesa Accredited PD

Are there certain aspects of children’s play that elicit strong feelings from educators? Do you sometimes feel conflicted about what should be ‘banned’ or ‘allowed’ in children’s play themes?

This session will unpack Play Theory as an important lens in which to view children’s engagement with the ‘unreal’ world. Understanding Play Theory will enable educators to interpret the ‘language of play’ and better support this fundamental right.

NOTE: Teachers in Victoria, QLD, WA, SA, NT, and Tasmania who complete this course will be provided with a certificate and are able to use this course towards their maintenance of Registration requirements.
