This Everyday Learning Series title explores:
- the characteristics and benefits of risky play
- environments that encourage children’s positive risk-taking in play
- ways to manage children’s risk-taking in play
- how educators can help children gradually take responsibility for their own safety.
The book also outlines the benefits of risky play for children’s development and learning, and provides educators with knowledge and ideas about supporting children’s risky play while managing safety.
About the Everyday Learning Series:
Early Childhood Australia’s Everyday Learning Series acknowledges that the most important early learning happens through day-to-day life experiences and provides ideas and strategies on ways educators and families can make the most of these experiences to support children’s development. By ‘making the ordinary, extraordinary’, the Everyday Learning Series is an invaluable resource for educators, students of early education, beginning practitioners, and families by assisting them in maximising young children’s play, exploration and discovery, and development within learning environments.
