What Is Playwork?

Playwork is an alternative approach to working with children in their leisure time. The practice of playwork was invented by the UK adventure playground pioneers and playwork is now recognised as a distinct profession in the UK. The aim of playwork is to work to the child’s agenda.

PARS Playwork Practice 

The PARS model describes and defines professional playwork practice. Grounded in the philosophy of the adventure playground pioneers, PARS enables adults who work with children to articulate, develop and evaluate their playwork practice. PARS playwork practice is being used around the world to enable children to have time and space to be kids.
