Sarah Watkins on Daring Play

In this session, we discuss one aspect of Sarah’s book – daring play. Sarah explains why she prefers the term ‘daring’ to risky and how this change of words brings a whole new layer to the play pedagogy. We also discuss ‘hazards’ and how to approach this in an Early Years setting, including some common hazards you may find in your own setting.

Sarah has some very interesting perspectives on weapon play and how to encourage climbing (without coercion!). We finish the session by discussing how to work with parents to support daring play.
