The Pedagogy of Play conference is all about the power of play. There has been an increasing decline of play in early childhood. Yet the research continues to support that the best and most effective way to prepare children for academic learning is a rich play-based education until age seven.
It is time to take back play.
This year's conference is going to give you a comprehensive toolkit that will support you in bringing back or sustaining a play rich education.
The conference begins the week of July 16, 2018.
Busy that week? Not a problem. All sessions will be available for lifetime access. Take part when it works for you and your schedule!
