    Default Dissertation Contribution for Early years in Childcare Degree

    Hello Members,

    I am new here, over the past months I have found the information and wealth of experience form the members useful.

    I am currently completing my university degree in Early Years in Childcare and as part of my Dissertation I I have been asked to post the questions below in a forum I belong to for contribution by members.

    Please help by giving a little of your time answers to the below questions or contribution as you deem fit.

    QUOTE:"Risky play is a natural part of children’s play, and children often seek out opportunities for engaging in challenging and so called risky play. Risky play can be defined as a thrilling and exciting activity that involves a risk of physical injury, and play that provides opportunities for challenge, testing limits, exploring boundaries and learning about injury risk (Sandseter (2007; Little & Wyver, 2008)."

    Questionnaire about risky play:

    1. What do you understand by the term risky play?
    2. How important do you think risky play is?
    3. Do you think risky play provides children with learning opportunities?
    4. How do you think children learn best?
    5. What type of play does your child like best?
    6. Does your setting promote risky play?

    Much appreciated for your contribution

    Best Regards,

    This is an old but still relevant blog on risky play - Sarah's Blog: Risk Taking and Childminders

    This is the latest information from Ofsted - Ofsted chief airs concerns over 'risk-averse' nurseries | Nursery World.

    I hope you find something useful there!
