Risky Play in Early Years

Early Years Child Protection Training CourseRisky Play in Early Years is an Early Years Training Course aimed at taking a new look at encouraging more risky play opportunities in Early Years settings.

Taking part in risky play in early years activities has lots of benefits to young children, but just how much risk is too much?  This course examines the way we handle risky activities in the setting, from why they should be used to how to mitigate the risk.  This course provides tools to safely provide a risk assessed, challenging environment for children that allows them to take risks that aid their development.

This Risky Play in Early Years training course will cover the following points:

  • What is Risky Play?
  • Understanding the importance of Risky Play
  • Safely promoting Risky Play in your setting
  • The importance of correct Risk Assessment

This course can be delivered either at a venue with social distancing restrictions in place, or alternatively, remotely via Zoom, to meet the needs of the setting.
