At Willand Holiday club we follow the Playwork Principles. These Principles help us to ensure we are providing the best possible opportunities to meet every individual child’s play needs, make friends, and have fun whilst learning about the environment and world around them. These principles establish the professional and ethical framework for playwork, and describe the importance and what is unique about play.
