Confidence Building in the outdoors

This article describes one of the reasons outdoor and risky play is so important, and, why it is so important that the adults involved are taking the right approach. It is so important to scaffold and support the play experiences appropriately in order for the children to gain the significant benefits available. It is so easy to get stuck in a safety rut, using our adult perceptions and concerns to inhibit play “just in case” rather than allowing children to expand and develop their own risk and safety assessments and in turn their problem solving, confidence, self-esteem and so, so much more.
