Early Years Learning Series Special Event, The power of 30 minutes Play and the developing brain with Robyn Monro Miller

Join us for a playful exploration of neuroscience and take away enough interesting facts for you to convince even the toughest cynic about the value of play for every child.

Robyn is a former child with over half a century of experience in being playful! Her early years were spent building unsafe structures in gum trees in the bushland in the south of Sydney, Australia. Robyn is currently a Board member for Play Australia and Children’s Week and since 2017, she has held the position of President of the International Play Association (IPA) (the first Aussie in their 60 year history).

Play is of fundamental importance for survival of a species and your advocacy for play is important!
