Therese Hoyle has over 20 years' teaching experience in mainstream, special and tertiary education. She is the founder and Head Facilitator of The Success Partnership Limited, an educational consultancy, coaching and training organisation. Since 1997 Therese has worked nationally and internationally with over 400 schools and organisations and with more than 13,000 individuals inspiring them with Positive Playtime, Circle Time, Positive Parenting, Positive Behaviour Management and Leadership Coaching programmes. Her work in schools has been featured in a UK DfES (now DCSF), BBC Anti Bullying Video (never released), the national press and New Zealand's Education Gazette. Therese has a passion for creating positive and harmonious school cultures and for supporting children in reaching their full and true potential.


Children's play is a profoundly important part of their lives - socially, emotionally, culturally and developmentally. If they are given enough space, it also happens to be very good for their physical health and fitness. Play is nowhere more important than at school, where children spend such a large amount of time. The counter-balancing freedom and autonomy after the order and discipline of the classroom, the chance to let off steam, but also the opportunity to explore and develop vital social skills have been a key function of playtime since children have been going to school. Playground games are an important part of this tradition and a give us a fascinating insight into the world of the child. Like children themselves, these games are complex and simple, spontaneous and highly ordered, metaphorical and extremely literal. Most of all they are huge fun. Their decline is a sad indictment of the skewed priorities we place on the modern child. I welcome this book and commend it to parents and teachers everywhere.
