Get ready to be part of an outdoor play revolution! Let’s get together and review outdoor play and how we can bring the inside out and outside in! Participants will consider time, space and materials, and the roles early learning educators’ exhibit to encourage children to experience play in a meaningful way. We’ll explore using loose parts in the outdoor and indoor play space and setting up invitations to play that provoke children’s thinking and ideas.
Discover how to easily connect the outdoor to the indoor.
Be inspired to create beautiful environments outside and inside to invite curiosity.
Encourage bringing children outside, to connect with nature and promote the benefits of outdoor free play.
