Play is an intrinsic aspect of children and young people’s lives. Play challenges and informs our understanding of children and young people because it views children as competent and confident human beings.
This resource you will give you a better understanding of the need for play and the importance of being creative and inclusive when planning, designing and implementing outdoor play space. Whilst Space to Play is primarily focused on outdoor play space development within registered childcare settings many of the underlying principles and approaches outlined are transferable to a range of wider settings. The publication is intended to inform all sequential stages of development for any outdoor play project.
Using the visual of a roundabout the publication is divided into 6 colour coded design stages. Each stage, offers relevant information, guidance and support. Depending on your circumstances or specific needs some stages will be more relevant than others.
