Promoting Professional Development and Best Practice in EE
Creating Outdoor Spaces That Encourage Exploration and Discovery
Hours for Learning Activity:1 learning hour
Outdoor play spaces are a critical component of any early childhood education program. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore the benefits of natural playgrounds and learn about creating "special spaces" that challenge a child's physical, emotional, and cognitive growth. Working together, the group will plan elements for outdoor spaces that utilize loose parts and natural materials, and develop activity ideas and lessons to integrate all learning domains.
