This year’s National Children’s Day UK (NCDUK2015) is all about the ‘Science and Magic of Play’, an initiative of the Save Childhood Movement, and to celebrate Canterbury Steiner School are organising a morning of play for children and their parents and teachers. Many factors have conspired to reduce the amount of play in children’s lives (such as a risk-averse society, and the busy lives of modern families) but we know that play really matters, not only for children’s health and wellbeing, but for the happiness and wellbeing of adults too.
Our event on May 17th will be suitable for all children from birth to 14 years and will run from 10am to 12.30 pm. There will be organised activities for different age groups and the opportunity to experience different kinds of play and games. We will also be hosting some talks/discussion sessions for adults on the importance of play for children and what we can do to facilitate play opportunities and environments for the children in our care.
This event is for the whole school community, including family and friends. Attached is the poster for the event, so please help us spread the word.
