Putting play back into Prep.
Enriching early years schooling through playful teaching approaches.
We are a group who have come together, through our shared conviction about the value and importance of play to children’s all-round development and education.
In various ways, we aim to build on Lil Gwyther’s work, and provide a “meeting place” for like-minded friends who, for a range of reasons, have expressed interest in maintaining the place of play in young children’s lives and education. Lil was a tireless advocate and activist for the place of play in early childhood education.
This community is growing, and includes:
- Early childhood educators
- Parents and families
- Graduate teachers
- Recipients of the “Lil Gwyther Award for Exellence”
- Early Childhood teacher educators
- Leaders of community organizations
- School principals
- Union leaders
If you would like to join us, please register on this site, and we look forward to sharing with you through exchanges of research , stories, information, actions and events.
