Sessions are not just about individual block play, they are skill building sessions facilitated by Karen Elzinga who has Post Graduate Cert Human Services (Contemporary issues of Children and Families, Post Graduate Cert Early Childhood Education and Post Grad Cert Counselling). These sessions are about socialization and building resilience against social anxiety (a condition so prevalent in children and young people today) and is incorporated into creative block play through the building of self concept strategies and techniques.
