Outdoor Play Throughout the Year

Living in Canada we have an opportunity to incorporate outdoor play throughout the year no matter what the season or what the weather. In this session we developed an understanding of outdoor play that can be shared with our families and colleagues as well as to highlight the benefits of outdoor play while using low cost/no cost strategies and materials that can be implemented into the daily program to support daily outdoor play. Participants took a look at global outdoor play trends as well as other related concepts that we can transition into our outdoor programs. Finally, a look into ECCDC’s Naturalized Play Space Project where the learnings highlighted the importance of outdoor play in relation to children’s development and the play experiences offered throughout the seasons.

Whether in person or via webinar, our sessions can be delivered for your staff team or your community!
