NEWSLETTER - 2019 A year to celebrate

2019 a year to celebrate

It has been a really full year for CreateCATT with our 1st International Developmental Play Conference in Manila, the launch of Developmental Play in Bangalore, emerging partnerships, and our work represented at conferences across the world: the LEGO and UNICEF Play Conference in Pretoria, The 1st UK/US Art Therapy in London, and the Asian Regional Network of Early Childhood (ARNEC) conference in Hanoi.

We have trained over 80 Certified Developmental Play Practitioners and launched our new blended learning online training and three new courses in our online academy. One for parents, one on autism and one on storytelling - with our story-cards pack included. You can find these resources at

It has been a playful and creative year and we are delighted to welcome so many of you to our global community to support ALL children to create, play, move and learn.

2020 – a year to look forward to

In the New Year, we will extend our training across India and Vietnam, and in June we will offer our first train-the-trainers course in Manila, extend our training to Davao in the Philippines, and open discussions with partners in the US. Check out details of upcoming workshops and courses on to find out what is happening near you, or to join the journey online.

We are also looking forward to the first book chapter on the Developmental Play Model coming out in the Routledge International Handbook of Play and Play Therapy and an article in the new year edition of Childhood Education Innovations,

We wish you all a happy holiday season and a blessed new year, and we look forward to staying connected with you to give ALL children the best start in life for the best chance in life through the wonderful power of play.

Warmest wishes

Caroline Essame, Caroline Clay

The CreateCATT team
