As in previous years we are calling on families and carers to support children to play in carefree ways, on Playday and every day! Children will play wherever they are and whenever they can – as adults we can support this by making play a part of our daily life.
Playday is an annual day to recognise children’s right to play. Although it will be very different to previous Playdays, it’s important that we go ahead with this year’s celebration, as recognising the importance of children’s play is more important than ever.
Due to current government guidance about social gatherings and physical distancing, we are not asking you to organise public Playday events but we are looking forward to hearing about the creative ways you plan to celebrate Playday in your area. This year, we are encouraging families to celebrate children’s right to play at home. In response to the unusual circumstances, the Playday events section of this website will not be available this year.
For the latest updates on this year’s campaign follow Playday on Facebook and Twitter – and share your plans with us using the #Playday2020 hashtag.
