CC 0302 Get Outdoors in the Early Years

Everything is possible outside - children are more physically active, the natural world enters through all the senses, community connections are made and emergent curriculum takes off! During this session we will examine the benefits of outdoor play to child development and learning, consider different frameworks to create engaging outdoor play spaces and directly experience activities and provocations you can use Monday morning. Come ready to be outside for part of this session.
