About this event

Using Canadian resources and international tools, we will define this idea of risky, challenging, and adventurous play. We will think and converse about “What is my attitude?” , “What is my disposition towards these ideas?” “ How can I support children’s healthy sense of agency and confidence?”

We will discuss the role of the adult and different types of play, risk assessment and dealing with concerns. This will be a dialogue with “spicy” overtones, a great topic for engaging with different perspectives, especially with settings, rules, and expectations.

This session will enhance your ability to use your professional judgement in relation to outdoor environments with children and families as suggested by the Practice Guideline: Pedagogical Practice, College of ECE, July 2020.
