How to get Involved

Prior to Childhood Services Week we will provide a series of arts-based webinars running in the evening from the 22nd April to the 21st of May. We hope these will support and enthuse all providers and practitioners to provide a range of experiential arts opportunities that children can enjoy and have fun with in the run up to and during Childhood Services Week, and beyond!

We will launch the campaign with our first webinar Creativity on a shoestring: Welcome to the curious world of creative reuse on Thursday 22 April.

Delivered by Emma Connors CEO of ReCreate, Aisling Folan, Creative Director and artist Jo May. This webinar will showcase to early childhood and school aged practitioners how to support process led play with open ended materials. The presenters will bring attendees on a journey of how to support and guide children through playful enquiry.

A full suite of webinars aimed at those working with children under 3, preschool and school aged children will be delivered from the 26th April. Click below for details on the webinars and how to book.
