The Outdoor Playspace Naturally: For Children Birth to Five Years
1 Jan 2007
This publication will challenge your perceptions about early childhood outdoor playspaces and inspire change! The Outdoor Playspace Naturally arose from concerns shared by the editor and contributing authors about children's playspaces in early childhood services in Australia. It reveals their concerns and offers guidance and information to early childhood educators, centre co-ordinators, management committees, designers and all those involved in the provision of early childhood services. We can do better for children than quick fix, generic and synthetic playspaces and this publication provides the foundation for creating natural, dynamic and engaging playspaces. At its heart, the creation of a natural playspace is a collaborative venture between children, parents and staff that is locally vital and evolves over time. The inspiring photographs and case studies well illustrate the potential.
