World Children's Day
17 January 2011
Milton Keynes Play Association sent a group of playworkers to Dusseldorf in September 2010 to visit UNICEF’s World Children’s Day. One was generously funded by the Nancy Ovens bursary, and the rest were self-funding.
The day was a fantastic showcase for a wide variety of groups working with children - a fair proportion of these were play-based, and the team picked up a plethora of fantastic play ideas to bring back and share in the UK.
It was interesting to note that although there were ideas that we had not seen before, there were also things that we do here that weren’t demonstrated at all, and MKPA Play Team are hoping to wangle an invite for next year's event to share some of our good practice!
MKPA are running an open professional development event on 26th January 2011 to share the good practice learnt in Dusseldorf, primarily for practitioners in MK, but all are welcome! For more information contact us or see our flier.
