Grass, Dirt, and Concrete: Engaging Preschoolers in Outdoor Spaces
The outdoor learning environment is an integral part of any early childhood program. It provides opportunities for children to develop gross motor skills, engages in social interactions, and take appropriate risks. Playing in a more naturalized outdoor learning environment is more engaging for children, and small changes can positively impact children, staff, and families. In this 1.5-hour face-to-face training learn how adding loose parts to the outdoor learning environment can create new opportunities for cognitive growth and development, creativity, and language. By reimagining the outdoor learning environment as a dynamic and variable space, educators will gain new insights into ways to ensure no two days outdoors are ever the same.
