Research Associates presented at the Alberta Child Care Association (ACCA) annual conference May 14, 2016.
What is Risky Play? How do perceptions among parents, early childhood educators (ECEs), and licensing officers allow for active energetic play versus risky play in child care settings? This interactive discussion will address definitions, research, and identify barriers that restrict active energetic play. Curriculum opportunities for bridging the gap between licensing regulations and accreditation standards for active energetic play will be explored both through presentation and through participant involvement.
