This title considers every aspect of outdoor play - from its rationale in early childhood education, to incorporating it successfully into the curriculum and assessing its wider implications for teaching and learning. A recent report has found that young children are not receiving the play-based education that they should be due to the pressure on practitioners to prepare for more formal learning in later years. In this engaging and stimulating guide, Ros Garrick considers every aspect of outdoor play - from its rationale in early childhood education, to incorporating it successfully into the curriculum and assessing its wider implications for teaching and learning. This new edition has been brought up-to-date with recent national and international research, the Every Child Matters Agenda and the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance. New case studies and examples of international practice are included, as well as a fully updated list of useful organizations and agencies.

A recent report has found that young children are not receiving the play-based education they are supposed to because of pressure on practitioners to prepare for more formal learning in later years.

This new edition has been brought up-to-date with recent national and international research, the Every Child Matters Agenda and the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance.

Review:
'A wonderful introduction to the possibilities, potential and pleasures of playing outdoors for children in the Foundation Stage. This book is enjoyable and accessible, leading the reader to engage with a range of current research as well as with reflective activities to promote high quality individual professional practice.'
Anna Cox, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for PGCE Early Years Education, University of Northampton, UK

'A thought-provoking but very accessible book covering a lot of ground, playing a valuable role in bringing together a wide range of research and showing how this can guide practice in outdoor provision. I particularly like how Ros skilfully uses relevant research findings to give readers food for thought for making effective decisions regarding a range of common dilemmas in practice outdoors, demonstrating the need to generate and use evidence rather than assumptions.' Jan White, Consultant for Outdoor Provision in the Early Years, UK
