Risky Play Workshop Announced

Hi there 

On Monday, our Risky Play Workshop went live. Click here to check it out! 

Over the last 18 months we’ve added new resources to our Thrive Outside project to support our community  – and we also asked what would be most helpful for you. 

Hundreds of you responded from across the country. And we heard loud and clear – so many of you were looking for ways to support children in appropriate risk-taking when taking play and learning outdoors. 

The CNAC team got to work and developed a new, free online workshop: Supporting Risky Play – a short online course designed to help educators and caregivers who want to support risky play when children in their care are learning through play outside. 

The Thrive Outside project was created to supported educators and caregivers in brining children outside to play and learn  safely – across all outdoor settings. Being outside carries mental and emotional benefits as well as rich learning outcomes. 

There’s so much potential with this current shift towards more outdoor learning. We want to make sure our resources and materials meet this moment and support you as effectively as possible by being easy-to-use and learner-led. 

We’re very excited to share the Supporting Risky Play Workshop with you today. You can view it at: 

We’re so thrilled that we can offer this workshop completely free of charge thanks to generous contributions from Ontario Trillium Foundation, Frank Cowan Insurance and donations from individuals across the country. 

We really hope you get as much out of the workshop as we did creating it.  Thanks so much,  Petra
