Early learning and childcare - Out to Play: guidance for out of school care providers - section 10

Supplementary chapter 10 should be used alongside the main Out to Play document to support the delivery of outdoor experiences in Out of School Care settings.


This section has been designed for Out of School Care practitioners and should be used in conjunction with the main Out to Play document. You can also find more information in Space to Grow.

Being outdoors offers children the opportunity to explore the natural environment. It provides a sense of freedom and offers exciting opportunities for new challenges, as well as risk taking.

Having the freedom to go outdoors should be a positive experience for children outside of the classroom.
