Outdoor Play

Regular price $1.99

The outdoor environment is a critical component to an effective early learning program. Unfortunately, notions about playgrounds are typically inspired by memories of our own elementary experience, which typically means a few pieces of metal or wood playground equipment baking in the hot sun. This publication consists of 6 (8 1/2” X 11”) pages of information that includes:

  • How to create outdoor spaces that are an extension of the classroom
  • The importance of natural elements and loose parts
  • Practical ideas for setting up outdoor interest centers
  • The importance of outdoor play for sensory processing and integration
  • The variety of spaces that are important for every playground
  • Health and safety concerns
  • Role of the teacher
