This course will help practitioners to understand the vital role woodland play is within the EYFS and how using the natural world as a resource can aid learning and development of a child

Learning Objectives:

• To consider the context of Forest/Woodland type education in the Early Years and its effect on the well-being of children
• To develop an understanding of the principles of this approach and how it supports EYFS practice
• To link policy to practice and consider the resources necessary to successfully introduce Woodland practice
• To develop a policy which can be introduced to parents and staff
• To consider “Risky Play” and how this is communicated to all staff and parents
• Delegates need to be prepared to go outside for a part of this session
