For some of you, this COVID-19 disrupted time may be an opportunity for you to continue with your Playcentre education.  Given that we are unable to offer workshops, the plan is to put our time, energy and money into high quality learning online that you can access when you choose so you do not have to travel or be available at a particular time. Investing in this development will serve Playcentre not just for now but into the future. At the same time we very much appreciate that some of you are not in a position to continue with the programme for the time being. We know that people have greater priorities at the moment.  It is fine if you are unable to continue with the Playcentre Education programme at the  moment – please do not be stressed about it – you will be able to continue in the future when the time is right for you.
