Educators as Supporters of Risky Play & the Benefits of Healthy Risk Taking July 3, 17, & 31, 2019
6:30pm – 8:00pm

How are you providing experiences that support healthy risk and challenges for young children? As educators, we are aware of the need for children to take healthy risks, and the benefits and challenges that go with it. When given the chance to engage freely in adventurous play, children quickly learn to assess their own skills and match them to the demands of the environment.

If this sparks your curiosity, join us in the three-part interactive series that will support your practice. You will experience the joys and benefits of risky play, engage in dialogue and recognize how your own attitudes may inhibit children’s opportunities for risk-taking, as well as challenge your own thinking lens.

Commitment to all three sessions is required.

Session One: Risky Play as Part of Early Education

  • Risky play as part of early education, children are intrinsic risk-based learners and need to experience risk to know how to manage it

Session Two: Play—What is it all about?

  • Play and engaging risky play
  • Increase opportunities for children in risk-taking
