What we'll do
Play is a critical part of any child’s development, yet it is sometimes easy to overlook its importance. It can be hard to find safe opportunities where children can have the freedom, space, or time that they need for play. Our role is to help overcome some of these challenges so that children have opportunities for child-led play, this helps to develop social skills, build relationships, and promotes self-confidence. Open access play is an opportunity to bring families and communities closer together. We provide four types of play events. Risky Play - which allows children to encounter risky experiences, to develop survival skills and conquer fears. E.g climbing trees, climbing the van, lifting large objects, balancing on high beams or using ropes to build and balance, Using 'dangerous' tools such as saws, water slides, assault courses, using and lighting a fire pit to cook. Some children discover strength and confidence they didn’t know they had. Sports and Games - which allows children to be interactive and sociable with each other and to work together for a common goal, through sports and playing games. these include football, cricket, rounders, archery, badminton, volleyball, tag, parachute games, tennis and many more. Imaginative / Messy Play Messy Play - which allows children to discover textures and and the effect some ingredients have on each other through fun experiments, painting, foam play, slime play, sand & water play and all types of arts and crafts using materials from our scrap store. Imaginative Play - Which allows a child’s imagination to run wild, using objects & actions to represent other things. It includes loose parts play with small and large objects, face paint, dressing up, small world toys, and Den building.
About your mentor
Milton Keynes Play Association
Fun & Funky!
I became Play Events Manager at Milton Keynes Play Association in 2022 after 30 years of working in the childcare industry, twenty of which I owned and managed my own children’s nursery. I am NNEB qualified and have done ongoing CPD training all of my life. I am also designated safeguarding lead and Paediatric First Aid trained. I Love watching children grow in their self confidence as they try and then master new things. In my opinion the best way for children to learn is through play…… make things fun and you will learn at the same time, no matter your age!
