Presenters: Sarah Seekamp and Ben Rogers

Child-led play is an approach to playtime that relies on the parent following the child’s choices, leads and prompts without teaching or correcting. It helps parents to focus on the individual needs and preferences of their child and contributes to developing children’s skills in creativity, problem solving and decision making, increasing their confidence and resilience.

In this webinar, Sarah will detail how practitioners who work with families with children aged 0–12 years can adapt child-led play to their specific professional circumstances and use it as a mental health promotion strategy. This webinar will assist practitioners who interact with families in universal health, education and community services, including early childhood education and care settings.
