Playing and Learning Outdoors shows early years practitioners how to get the very best from outdoor playing and learning for the enjoyment, health and education of all children from ages three to five years.
Fully updated to reflect the current status and understandings regarding outdoor provision within early childhood education frameworks, this new edition will allow practitioners to develop rich and stimulating outdoor play provision in Early Years settings and enable them to feel confident to offer wonderful play experiences outdoors.


Playing and Learning Outdoors offers practitioners achievable advice and support, based on approaches which are appropriate and effective for young children's all-round well-being and development. This invaluable resource also includes practical advice on:

  • movement and physical play
  • playing with sand, natural materials and water
  • plants, living things and growing
  • construction, creative and imaginative play.
