pre-recorded 7/28: Outdoor Living for COVID 19 recording/Into the outdoors and away with COVID-19

Publication Summary:

Presented by Mary MacKenzie, Senior Fellow at Institute for Child Success and Rachel Dearnley, UK Early Years Consultant and Trainer.

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. As a result, there is growing interest in high-quality outdoor learning, in sites across the U.S. and throughout the world.

During this webinar, participants will learn how to implement outdoor learning techniques in a practical and economical way. Participants will also take a virtual tour of a forest school, Barnkids, in Surrey, England and hear the managers share their vision and how best to facilitate learning while adhering to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
