Event description

Description

Start the year with a focus on creating a risk-based program that will benefit both adults and young children!



Research tells us that children need and want to take risks when they play, but how do we provide them with the opportunity to experience risk that allows them to explore and develop their own abilities?

With a growing culture of risk aversion, understanding how to cater for risk taking activities and adventurous play in the early years can be a challenging and complex task. This workshop will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of negotiating and managing risk as a vital skill for life.


This workshop will be presented by Scott Gibson who has over 15 years experience working in the education and care sector, supporting children, educators, teachers, principals, managers and families around the area of risk taking and will explore:

- why children need to take risks
- how to support risk taking in the LDC, FDC, school or home environment
- providing and managing adventurous activities
- adult's roles and responsibilities
- how to conduct a benefit risk assessment
- strategies for bringing families, managers and educators/teachers on board

Suitable for educators, teachers, managers or principals working with 2-5 year old children.

Facilitator: Scott Gibson
