At Play England you can join a growing movement of people supporting and enabling children to play more every day!
Seriously! A Movie About Play is a documentary by Gwen Gordon. It is about the power of play to generate and restore health and sanity to our world. It reveals how foundational play is to every area of life. We recommend you check it out!

some Blogs we like
No Such Thing as Bad Weather!
Here at Fafu we are big fans of outdoor play, so we love this great little blog by Kierna Corr, a preschool teacher from Northern Ireland where outdoor play plays a central role.
Check it out at nosuchthingasbadweather.blogspot.com :)
Elevating Child Care
Another firm favorite of ours is Janet Lansbury and her blog Elevating Child Care. We thoroughly recommend you follow her blog at janetlansbury.com and like her on Facebook.com/janetlansburyElevatingChildCare!
As strong advocates for natural play, we very much like what Jan White writes about on her blog Natural Play. Check her out at
nurseries we love
Sure, we are biased. Child First is our very own Tom Shea's chain of nurseries, but then again, that also means that they are exactly in line with all of Fafu's beliefs! Have a look and see how great the are :)
Down in Cornwall there are some magical places - the Naturally Learning nurseries. We think they are great, and that, among other things, is why collaborated with them on our IMYNDA range to encourage movement and dance. We suggest you give them at least an online visit :)
