The Power Of Play: Exploring The Vital Role Of Play In Emotional Health And Learning

In a world that has replaced play with entertainment, we are seeing the dire side effects of this cultural shift as aggression and anxiety in children is at an all time high. Children’s challenging behaviours are getting in the way of their relationships and learning, making it increasingly difficult for educators to lead, care for, and teach their students. This conversation has never been more important as leaders look to how they can support children’s emotional health and help educators with key strategies for change.

We will explore how play lowers anxiety and aggression, builds resilience, fosters social and emotional health as well as increasing natural curiosity and engagement with learning. You will learn different ways that your school can make room for play as well as how you can support your team with how to infuse play (for students of all ages) into their classrooms.

Join Hannah for a powerful workshop that will help you gain insight into the psychology of play and how you can use it to strengthen your learning community so that educators can fulfill their calling to help all students discover their best selves.
