Quick Overview

We all know that outdoor play is important, but how many of us encourage the children in our care to play outside?

"Outdoor play? Oh yes, we've bought some equipment for that..."

· Why is playing outside important?
· What can adults do to support children in playing outside?
· What does a 'good' outdoor play space look like?
· And why is 'playing outside' different to 'outdoor play'?

The Busker's Guide to Playing Out explores the theoretical and practical considerations for why it is important for children to have access to outdoor spaces for their play. It examines types of outdoor play spaces and the resources which are found in them, and more importantly, offers guidance in how adults can help manage outdoor spaces and resources while also supporting children's play.
