About this class
Play has been called the ‘work of children’. However, in our fast-paced and result-driven society, it seems that play is losing value. In this masterclass, we discuss why play is important with a special focus on adventurous play, which is something that children are definitely not doing as much as in previous generations. This masterclass is of interest to every parent because as our expert, Dr Rachel Nesbit says: “We never stop playing”. Enjoy it!
