Join our new short courses

If you are keen to support the children you care for, or just to understand yourselves better, then our short courses are ideal. They are all based on the Developmental Play Model but are quick, easy to access and full of practical ideas you can use with your children.


Topics for our short courses which you will find on our academy include:

  • Understanding body schema and sensory body play 

  • Messy play – its power and how to do it 

  • Nature play, its importance and how to design nature sessions 

  • Storytelling - Building higher play, language and symbolic thought 

  • Working with children with autism through play

These short courses can be delivered as blended learning  and are specially designed for schools - contact us to make a booking for your school staff development.


We also offer the following three-hour experiential workshops that offer hands-on exploration with best practice theory which will help you understand how we process and express difficulties pre-verbally and how we can harness creativity and play to help children recover from the pandemic.


Mess and Monsters – A Masterclass exploring fear and chaos and ways to transform them.

With an introduction to understanding mess and the metaphors of monsters, this hands-on workshop will transform the way you understand the power of play to help us cope with the world around us.


Developmental Play and Trauma Masterclass - Learn how play supports children to cope with trauma. This Masterclass includes a talk on the process of trauma and how it presents in children, as well as lots of creative play ideas to build resilience and wellbeing.
