The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) will offer a two-day, in-person, hands-on workshop in September as part of its Certified Play Expert program, a professional education initiative to help toy industry retailers, sales representatives, and manufacturers strengthen their businesses by increasing their knowledge about play and child development.
The two-day workshop will be held in Chicago September 14 and 15. Participants will get research-based instruction in several core areas, including theories of child development, characteristics of major developmental stages, types of play and their benefits, advocating for play, and making sense of play.

Information about the program, how to register, and deadlines for participation is available here.

At Playground Professionals, we scour the internet looking for today's play news and views to share with you, bringing them all together in one place.
