About the event:

Let’s play was our autumn shared learning event for parents, workforce, volunteers or anyone in the Better Start Bradford area. The event explored the importance of play in early childhood development. Looking at how play is innate and is the way children grow, learn and develop. Held at the exciting Big Swing in Eccleshill, the event proved to be informative, fun and interactive.

We heard from two guest speakers:


“Children’s play in the early years provides all the developmental opportunities a child needs. It gives children essential life skills, and makes living worthwhile.” Dr Fraser Brown, Childhood Development and Playwork Team, Leeds Beckett University
