Malarkey Playwork is a training, advocacy and enabling body for the Play and Playwork sectors established in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. We work with professionals and sectors who work for and with children and young people of all ages. This includes training, professional development, consultancy, resources and support for those working in the children and young people's workforce.
Playwork is a very specific type of work distinctive from other ways of working with children in a number of ways, particularly in the very hands-off style of adult interaction with children that is at the core of playwork. It is an approach that has, up until now, not been taught to our early years, school and youth sectors educators in Australia. Through Malarkey Playwork we are bringing the importance of children's play back to the forefront of playing and learning right around Australia.
