1st International Athens Conference

Play in Early Education

Venue: Serafeio Athletic & Community Complex , Athens

All of us who implement progressive models on Early Education, know one thing for sure: Play that is not controlled by the adults, is the one and only element children really need to grow.

Just through this kind of play children discover the world and become strong, enthusiastic, independent, caring and confident citizens. We see that happening every single day in our schools and we believe this is a message well deserved to be understood and spread, so save the date for the 1st International Athens Conference: “Play on Early Education” in April 2019!

Participants will be able to interact with world class keynote speakers with extensive experience in the field, as well as with individual presenters from many different countries sharing their good stories in play. And of course to engage in hands-on, field play workshops.

During the 3-day conference attendees will come to realize that, non-directed play deserves to be the main driver through which children grow, flourish and learn to acquire the ownership of their own life, at their own unique pace. And all this can become a feasible and effective early years’ class process, if only based on Respect, Freedom and Trust.

So, if you are anyhow involved in early education, or play, or both, and feel it’s time for some new inspiration, the 1st International Athens Conference: “Play on Early Education” is the place to be. Three days dedicated in play, in one of the most historical cities in the world.
