    Voices for Play Leadership Initiative

    Growing a New Generation of Advocates Committed to the Importance of Play

    Calling All Professionals Working with Young Children and Their Families!


    The Play Matters! Committee of the Southern California Advocates for Every Young Child (SCAEYC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new leadership initiative, VOICES FOR PLAY.

    VOICES FOR PLAY reaffirms the connection between play and healthy child development, providing research-based information that recognizes play as essential to learning and overall functioning of the developing brain. VOICES FOR PLAY will grow the next generation of empowered leaders and advocates across professional disciplines who will speak with a common voice about the importance of play in young children’s lives.

    Four intensive full-day seminars will be offered to professional leaders from throughout Los Angeles County. Seminars will feature noted presenters with expertise in play theory and practice within various disciplines, and opportunities to play and learn with other seminar participants. Special emphasis will be placed on building participants’ leadership and advocacy skills. At the conclusion of the training and the satisfactory completion of requirements, participants will be recognized as a VOICES FOR PLAY LEADER. Three continuing education credits  will be available through UCLA Extension for $250.

    Marilyn McGrath, a passionate advocate for the importance of play in children’s lives, will help to lead this ground-breaking series of seminars.
