This workshop aims to inspire educators to further incorporate the natural environment in their programs. It will look at the importance of unstructured play, and the role of inquiry and interest- led play in learning. We will touch on the role of risk, and look at benefits of outdoor/nature-based play. If possible this workshop will involve an outdoor portion so please dress for the weather.
