Getting Comfortable With Risky Play


While research is clear on the value of children taking reasonable risks as they play and explore the world, many adults are uncomfortable with such play and exploration. This session offers adults a chance to gain a deeper understand of risky play’s value, reflect on their own feelings about such play, and see how risk-taking supports learning.


Learning Goals

Attendees will:

  • Reflect on their feelings and experiences with risky play
