We firmly believe in the power and benefits of play. In a world of increasing barriers and more screen time it is our job as professional’s amongst the playwork, education and childcare sectors to ensure we deliver on a child’s right to play.
Operation Play Outdoors take a very interactive and practical approach towards play training. We can provide practical workshops for your staff team to build the confidence, skills and enthusiasm to take learning and play outdoors. We come to your setting and create an individual workshop addressing the issues important to you and bringing new play opportunities to your group.
Our workshops can range from days full of new games and play ideas to understanding the importance of play in all peoples lives. It is often said how important play is for children which we understand and agree with, however not enough is said about the role adults play. We believe in order for more children to play it is important to get more adults playing as well.
We speak with many adults and parents about the time dedicated to play and it is becoming evermore clear that play is often sought of as a luxury and things like homework and chores are considered more important. Or in the case of screen time and computers it is an easier and safer alternative as described by some adults.
At Operation Play Outdoors we have made it our mission to challenge these perceptions of play and ultimately remove these barriers. Get involved with our play training and find fun, exciting play opportunities that are designed to get everyone playing more.
