Reclaiming Play:

Where it went. Why we need it.
And what we can do to bring it back.

Hannah Beach & Tamara Strijack

10:00 am – 4:00 pm PST
ONLINE – 2 times available (8 am or 4 pm PST)


We live in a world where play is being replaced with entertainment and skills-based activities.

We are now seeing the emotional side effects of the loss of play in the lives of children as aggression and anxiety in our young increases. Play provides a safe space to access our feelings and in doing so it serves a significant role in the unfolding of human potential. When we hear the word ‘play’, many of us think of young children and toys. This workshop will expand our understanding of what ‘play’ is (and what it isn’t) and its importance as a key driver of growth, learning and resilience.
