Take it Outside! A Nature Perspective Series
This series has been created through conversation and feedback in the early learning community as educators navigate the outdoors and offering opportunities to engage with loose parts, explore in all weathers and encourage opportunities for children to challenge themselves to take a risk. Throughout the course of this series, participants will have an opportunity to reflect and share experiences with fellow educators, brainstorm and engage in group discussions, immerse themselves in hands-on experiences, identify connections to Ontario’s Early Leaning Frameworks, and strategize how to weave their learning into their daily practice through action planning.
Session 2: 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 will develop an understanding of outdoor play that can be shared with our families and colleagues as well as 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. 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.
