Welcome to Playfile

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. 

UPDATE! I put most of my stuff on Facebook these days but I’m aiming to collect the play-related stuff and publish it here in a PDF – watch this space…

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
