Play

‘The right to play is the child’s first claim on the community. Play is nature’s training for life. No community can infringe that right without doing deep and enduring harm to the minds and bodies of its citizens.’

David Lloyd George, 1928

OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR SAY

Have your say on Children and Young People’s play in Carmarthenshire!

We are doing some research to find out what play opportunities there are for children and young people in Carmarthenshire, called a Play Sufficiency Assessment. As part of the Play Sufficiency Assessment, Carmarthenshire County Council is carrying out surveys to build a picture of what it’s like for children and young people playing in Carmarthenshire. The information will be used to find ways of protecting and improving the opportunities, time and space available for playing or hanging out.

CLOSING DATE: Friday 14th December 2018

Play Carmarthenshire

The Carmarthenshire Play Team can support you in a variety of ways. We offer

  • Play Training each term to all registered and non registered settings; school staff; parents and community groups. For play training opportunities please contact the Family Information Service on 01267 246555
  • Advice on how to create a playful environment during and outside of teaching hours. The school day should allow time and space for children to relax and play freely with their friends. Children spend a great deal of time in school and for children playtimes are a very important part of the day. A rich play environment is a varied and interesting physical environment that maximises the potential for socialising, creativity, resourcefulness and challenge, and a place where children feel free to play in their own way, on their own terms.
  • Advice and guidance and letters of support for funding applications
