Child-directed play is a deeply embedded and essential tool for processing the world but finding time and space for tinkering, exploring and discovering can be a challenge to fit in between life’s many responsibilities.

This workshop for parents with children between 0-5 years old will provide an overview of the many benefits of play and tips on how to set up environments that encourage creativity, independence, and problem-solving skills.

Event: June 6, 2019 at 5:30 thru 6:30 p.m. in Celebrations 

This workshop is lead by Jill Wood, Director of Adventure Play at The Parish School and Founder of Bayou City Play
