Welcome to Mick Conway’s world of thinking about children’s play and playwork.
Playfile is a concept I’ve been meaning to put together for over 30 years – a place where I can gather and share what I have learned about the wonderful world of children’s play and that other equally astonishing but very different world of playwork. 

So please bear with me while I gradually build this website and try not to reinvent the wheel. For example, where something I have written is on another website I’ll add a link to it rather than republish here.

Adventure playground stuff is in the Writing page.

Also check out the Links page for clicks through to resources that I found on my various playwork journeys.

And have a look at The Wild Network
