How do we take cues from children in the outdoors to facilitate deep play? What does the outdoors offer for deep play? What learning are we aiming to provide as outdoor play facilitators? These are fundamental questions for all practitioners working with play in the outdoors.

On this day-long course, outdoor play and games will be shared to explore the possibilities the natural world and outdoor elements offer for meaningful play – from the creative to the rough and tumble.

We will also explore in detail the ludic (play) process; how do we as practitioners interact with outdoor play to support learning and development and how do we really understand what learning and development is happening during outdoor play.
