FREE ONLINE PLAY SESSIONS KEEPING KIDS CONNECTED AND PLAYING DURING PHYSICAL DISTANCING
ABOUT OUR ONLINE ADVENTURE PLAY
During these historic times, it is important to help give children outlets and encouragement to play! It’s a stress reliever, skill builder, and idea incubator all in one.
Finding Adventure Wherever You Play
Playworker: Jeremiah Dockray
Cost: $5 Suggested donation
Limited to 20 players per session
This class will serve several functions for students to:
Connect with other kids
Play games and find playfulness in your own personal space
Observe and re-contextualize their environment
Inspire each other by sharing stories of their own adventures
Each class will have check-in time, game time, and assignments they can do throughout the week to share with each other when they meet next. Jeremiah will be using playwork philosophy to build connections with the students and encourage them toward play that is freely chosen, personally directed, and intrinsically motivated.
In addition, Jeremiah will have online “office hours” every week to talk with parents about ways they are able to provide playful opportunities at home, have moral support, and maybe even have a little play themselves!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to prepare anything for my kids to participate in the session?
Our play sessions evolve with every experience, sometimes it's good to have your players in a comfortable area with good lighting and access to items they like to play with but we always go with the flow.
Do I need to supervise my child during the virtual play sessions?
This is specific to each family and player. If you think your player may need some technical help please feel free to stick near by. otherwise we want to continue to honor our lightest touch policy when it comes to play which is basically making sure that we as adults do not manage or direct the kids' play and allow them time, space, and permission to play along as they desire and are able. We do want to make sure that parents understand that our virtual play sessions do not replace in person adult supervision.
