IT IS TIME TO PUT OUR STAKE IN THE GROUND!

This conference has been curated to give you the tools and strategies to have complete confidence in play-based education.

HEY PLAY ADVOCATES!

I'm Sally Haughey, founder of Fairy Dust Teaching and The Wonder Tribe! I know all too well the frustration of hearing “play is not learning.” It seems that the academic pressures on young children are only increasing. It is hard. Hard on the children. Hard on us.

That's why I am hosting a conference focused on play. This conference was created to give you practical emergent curriculum inspiration and arm you with the knowledge that play is truly an academic foundation.

I have gathered some of my heroes of play based learning.

Join me in learning from some of the world's leading play experts!
