Playtime National Conference – 2020

Post image

Registration for this year’s conference has now closed, but we recognise that many toddler groups and their teams are actively seeking helpful information and ideas to navigate the COVID-19 regulations.

The theme for our Playtime National Conference this year was ‘Salt and Light’. How can toddler groups throughout the country be salt and light in their communities, particularly during this ever-changing season?

It’s certainly been challenging to understand and interpret the guidelines, particularly with the four nations having different rules, local area lockdowns taking place, and regulations frequently changing. Take a look below at our links to further sources of information.

We have also been gathering ideas to help you and your group stay connected, and be salt and light in your community. Keep up to date by joining our Playtime Facebook Group and sign up to our Playtime Newsletter for regular updates.
