Our Presenters

A Week of Amazing Material - A Month To Access it All!

Engage Your Way

The conference online platform enables you to pace yourself through the content in your own time, and in your own way.  Watch, re-watch, or revisit parts of presentations as and when you can during the month-long access each participant receives.  

Engage with live Q&A sessions and panels, forums discussing the power of play in the education setting and hear from everyday classroom practitioners about the celebrations and challenges they have faced as they've navigated the play journey in their classrooms.  


In 2024, we have collated a diverse and dynamic group of individuals who are at the forefront of integrating play into educational practices. Our lineup includes innovative classroom teachers, renowned researchers, and passionate play advocates, each bringing a wealth of experience and groundbreaking insights. These thought leaders are not just shaping the future of education; they are actively transforming classrooms around the world with innovative, play-based learning strategies. Their dedication and expertise make them not just speakers, but true catalysts for change, inspiring and empowering educators to create more joyful, engaging, and effective learning experiences for children.

Presenters who are classroom/school based will be sharing their journey and 'why' behind how they embed play pedagogy in their school settings and the celebrations and challenges along the way.  

This is a great opportunity for teachers, educators and school leaders to hear what their colleagues across New Zealand are doing to implement developmentally appropriate teaching practices, alongside the requirements of teaching literacy and numeracy, everyday in their own school settings.  

Join us at the Joy of Play Educators' Conference 2024 and be part of a movement that celebrates the joy, creativity, and importance of play in shaping the future of education.
