Whats in the Power of Play
Sir Ken Robinson

‘Only through the arts and by being creative can children explore the inner world of their imagination and feeling – the world that is uniquely them’.

Sir Ken Robinson
Patron of Earlyarts

‘You have really challenged my own way of thinking and made me critically reflect on my own practices in the types of play that I include in my current program and what I can further implement.
Thank you

I loved the practical techniques/activities. I was able to take these into my classroom and use and adapt.
The observation tool has also honed my attention in on the different type of play, I feel like I’m looking at all with fresh eyes and this has been very useful for developing my provision and planning.
Thank you!
