Promoting the Power of Play for Family Strengthening

Play and outdoor activities have positive and measurable effects on young children such as increased educational performance and achievements, health, well-being, as well as social and personal development. Play is also a way to bring families together, strengthen relationships, build trust and bonds, and have lasting impacts on family health and well-being as a whole.

This webinar, co-hosted with the National Family Support Network, introduces and promotes the importance of play in family support, particularly outdoor play.
