Considerations for outdoor play and safety

In this first episode of this two-part series on extending the Early Childhood classroom outdoors, Brenda Lowe and Dana Ellingson discuss the importance of outdoor play and some health and safety concerns to consider. They discuss using practical and creative ways to expand the classroom learning to the great outdoors and also how that in itself can present many rewards and challenges.  In addition to health and safety concerns for children, topics of cultural responsiveness and respecting parental concerns are addressed when thinking about supporting outdoor play.
