Event description

Description

Early childhood professionals are in a privileged position to develop strategies for re-connecting children to natural play spaces. When children engage in nature they are happier, more relaxed, more independent and more inquisitive. They learn how to recognise, assess and negotiate risk, building confidence and competence; all essential skills for life.

This practical workshop will be delivered within a bush-land setting where participants will have the opportunity to explore the outdoor environment, allowing for investigations and reflections relating to the process of providing children with challenging and engaging nature based experiences.

Topics of focus include:

- identifying challenges and solutions in nature - risk v’s benefits to children’s learning

- engaging and supporting children in adventurous play (earth, air, fire and water)

- science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM) in outdoor settings

- connecting to the seasons

This 4 hour workshop is suitable for educators, managers and teachers working with 3-13 year old children within a school, LDC, OSHC or FDC setting.
