Risky Play

Risky Play
A new course from NDNA, helping practitioners to reflect on their own practice in terms of risk experiences and what they offer to children.

Children who take risks in their play in the early years are more likely to remain mentally well, according to the Mental Health Foundation. 

However, recent research by Play England has found that there is a huge disparity between the activities of children today to those of their parents.

•    21% of children play outside today compared to 71% of their parents
•    64% of children today play outside less than once a week
•    43% of adults think children shouldn't play outside alone  until age 14
•    More children are admitted to hospital for falling out of bed than out of trees - True
•    25% of primary school children walk home from school compared to 86% in 1971.

This course includes:

- Attitudes to risk
- a risk averse society
- the problems with having no risks in play
- activities to support and promote risk-taking in a safe environment
- the role of the adult
- creating a challenging environment
- the Characteristics of Effective Learning
- risk versus risk benefits
