Global Day of Play 2019

Redwood is proud to participate in the 2019 Global School Play Day tomorrow. One Day. Nothing but Play!

There is a stark decline in opportunities for play in schools, from preschools through upper grades, yet there is evidence to support the importance of play in relation to emotional health, physical wellbeing and academic success. 

Children need to play. 

Although our school already makes an incredible commitment to this, with plenty of unstructured play (mostly outside) built into our daily schedule, we want to raise awareness about the importance of play for all school children.

On Wednesday, our entire school day will be filled with play, with as little adult intervention as possible. We will provide a lot of materials, and opportunities for collaboration across the classes, and let them take over! We can’t wait to experience this day at Redwood!
