  17. 17. Outdoor Classroom Training A Comprehensive program designed to introduce and develop play environment design skills for the child care professional Outdoor Play Environment & Classroom Design Training This workshop will focus on creating a total play environment for children incorporating art; natural areas, sand and water play as well as introducing non-traditional elements. The objective is to assist the participant in learning how to create a more natural play environment, providing children with many learning opportunities by using the natural features surrounding the playground area. We will learn how to incorporate a variety of activities (stimuli) rather than a variety of equipment, and to facilitate children’s play value by the combination of setting, challenge, and opportunity, which facilitates fully engaged exploration of the environment during independent, self-directed time.

  18. 18. Why Play Matters Too many kids are missing out on one of the most important childhood experiences: one that can help kids grow up healthy, happy and successful. An experience chock full of creativity, exploration, imagination, physical activity, friendship and adventure. The experience is PLAY. There is a nationwide scarcity of play and we are beginning to see a stark difference between children who play and children who don't. • Kids who play are healthier, less likely to be obese and less prone to obesity-related health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. • Kids who play do better in school. Play develops the cognitive skills that are positively linked to learning and academic performance. • Kids who play, play well as adults. Play builds confidence and teaches the social skills that help kids become happy, well-adjusted adults.
