The theme of Playday this year is Play Builds Children which aims to highlight the many ways in which play is beneficial to children and young people.
  • Play Builds Friendships:
    Playing allows children to interact with others, develop relationships, deal with conflict, and learn respect and tolerance.

  • Play Builds Resilience:
    Playing boosts children’s confidence, creativity, problem-solving skills and perseverance, enabling them to cope with stress and challenges throughout life.

  • Play Builds Health and Well-being:
    Being active through play helps children physically and emotionally, contributing to their health and happiness.

  • Play Builds Communities:
    Playing allows children to learn about the world around them, make connections, and develop a sense of identity and belonging.
