The Value of Risky Play



“Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play”

- Henri Matisse

Risk in play is not just valuable but essential. Children need to be encouraged and supported to take risks during play. When we encourage risky and rough and tumble play we encourage self esteem, problem solving and cooperation. We even help set them up to be more successful readers!

Risky play can be a challenge in a school setting. We are caretakers and value safety. This workshop will teach you how to safely encourage risky play in your school. You will learn about the difference between risk and hazard and how to set boundaries around wrestling, stick play and rough and tumble play.

You will also be given an opportunity to talk to your colleagues, with discussion topics, about this type of play. You will be encouraged to reflect on your own relationship with risk and play.

Finally you will learn about how to use your language to encourage and promote risky play in a way that helps to strengthen kids independently ability to manage risk, think critically, and problem solve.
