What Is Playwork?
Playwork originated in adventure playgrounds, which were created in the middle of the twentieth century. Nowadays playwork is a unique professional approach to working with children in their free time. The aim of playwork is to work to the child’s agenda.
PARS is the first ever model of playwork practice. Grounded in the original philosophy of the adventure playground pioneers, the PARS model is being used around the world to enable children to have time and space to be kids. PARS enables adults who work with children in a wide range of settings to articulate, develop and evaluate their playwork practice.
