About this event

This session will consider how educators can look to provide cost-effective outdoor play experiences for the youngest children in their care. We will also explore how educators can enhance their existing outdoor environments by incorporating the four natural elements to support sensory rich experiences that will enhance play, promote exploration, and provide a sense of wonder for both mobile and nonmobile children. The session will also look at the role of schema play in outdoor environments and how to include experiences that reflect schema play. Participants will have opportunities to engage in meaningful discussions with fellow Educators and to go outside and explore materials to utilize with infants and toddlers in the great outdoors. Be prepared with clothing appropriate for the weather forecast and come play and explore with us outdoors.
