Outdoor play in the early years - connections for learning, well-being and nature

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Play is the work of the child,' and one of our key roles as educators is to create spaces that allow unstructured play that stimulates and engages young children, allowing them to directly experience the natural world as they follow ants and smell the flowers. Research shows that children who play outside in nature in the company of a caring adult – you! - are more likely to practice responsible environmental behavior when they grow up.
