Adventure Play After School
​I  coordinated and was the playworker at Uni Primary Adventure Play After School where kids had the unique opportunity to play their way while making decisions about how they use their space and time. The playworkers provided materials and support so your children can:
  • Learn how to asses and take healthy risks

  • Practice skills like: problem solving, overcoming obstacles, communication

  • and much much more...
