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

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
