Child’s Play created an in house online training program for all employees to access when they begin their career with us.  Our courses cover Licensing, health and safety, food prep and more.

We have formed a training partnership with PARS Playwork Training from the UK.  Dr Shelley Newstead created the first holistic model to define and describe professional Playwork practise.  Dr Shelley analyzed over 70 years of Playwork literature to find out what it means to do Playwork from a Playwork perspective.  PARS training contains theories, methods and techniques which enable practitioners to articulate develop and evaluate their Playwork practise.

This training is delivered to all levels of Child’s Play employees remotely using video conferencing and is supported by Kirsty Taylor as the Community of Practise Leader to facilitate dialogue and continuous development around the subject.
