Sacramento Play Summit 2019

Saturday, September 14, 2019, 4:00 PM

Play is the most important work of childhood, setting the foundation for a child’s physical, emotional and cognitive well-being. Yet there are growing threats and limitations placed on the time, resources, and spaces devoted to play. The 7th annual Sacramento Play Summit, presented by Fairytale Town and Sacramento Public Library, aims to highlight the importance of play, the many types of play, ways to incorporate play into daily and school life, and more. This conference is ideal for adults who work with children: preschool and elementary educators, early childhood education specialists, childcare providers, after-school program administrators and practitioners, parks and recreation professionals, physical education professionals, parents, and grandparents.
