This essential course illustrates why it is vital for children’s wellbeing that they experience adventurous play and risk and challenge in their early years environments. It engages learners in a series of practical and fun activities that allow a setting to confidently include risky and challenging play to make play more exciting. We are not looking to injure children but to give them a vibrant and stimulating childhood. New the 2017 the course now delves into the fascinating neuroscience of just why children need adventurous play and how catastrophic it can be to over protect children.
