2 sessions: April 19 & 26
Children require environments that allow them to engage in play that is adventurous, challenging, and even risky. Risky play supports children in learning about their world; test what is and is not possible; learn about making mistakes; and discovering new things about their space, place and environment. This interactive workshop outlines some of the barriers that adults impose on children and strategies that support adults in advancing children’s opportunities to engage in active play that is stimulating, challenging, and fulfilling to them. The workshop introduces participants to the process of conducting and documenting a risk benefit analysis.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
