Challenging Adventurous Play

Using Canadian resources and international tools, we will define this idea of risky, challenging, and adventurous play. We will think and converse about “What is my attitude?” , “What is my disposition towards these ideas?”  “ How can I support children’s healthy development of agency and confidence?” We will discuss the role of the adult, different types of play, risk assessment and dealing with concerns. This will be a dialogue with “spicy” overtones, a great topic for engaging with different perspectives, especially with settings, rules, and expectations.
