Institute for Child Success (w/ audience): Into the Outdoors and Away with COVID-19

Publication Summary:

On July 30, 2020, ICS presented a cross-cultural, interactive event with a video tour of Barnkids in Surrey, England: Outdoor Learning for COVID-19. Produced by ICS Senior Fellow, Mary MacKenzie, and UK Early Years Consultant and Trainer, Rachel Dearnley. Research suggests that the community spread of COVID-19 is lower outdoors. The idea of open, child-directed play spaces instead of purpose-built equipment (like jungle gyms) appears to be the way forward as there is less risk of touching the same surfaces again and again.
