Playworking is a dynamic and child-centric approach to fostering play experiences that celebrates and supports children's innate drive to explore, create, and imagine. Rooted in the belief that play is a fundamental right for children, playworking focuses on the role of skilled and observant adults, known as playworkers, who interact with young individuals in a way that enhances their play rather than directing or interrupting it. These professionals create nurturing environments where children can engage in self-directed, unstructured play, promoting their physical, cognitive, and emotional development while valuing the inherent joy and learning that play inherently brings. In essence, playworking champions the art of standing back while standing by, enabling children to navigate their own adventures and develop a deep sense of agency, resilience, and exploration.
