About the Event

Risky play in the great outdoors for children is not only fun for them, but also key to their healthy development. In this interactive webinar, learn why risky play is important for preschoolers, see examples of what healthy risky outdoor play can look like, and get over five strategies for supporting it in your early childhood setting. Come away with more ways to say “yes” to risk!

This is a 1.5 hour training and is offered on a sliding scale, with a recommended cost of $30 USD. Please email rachel@twigandthread.com for group discounts.
