Did you know Playing outside promotes leadership skills?

In an environment where children create the fun, natural leaders will arise. One child may excel at explaining how to play the game, while another may enjoy setting up the physical challenge of an outdoor obstacle course.

All types of leadership skills are needed and encouraged. Provide the materials and the opportunities outside and watch the leaders of the future emerge!

Keeping your paperwork in order is essential and The Outdoor Play toolkit is designed to ensure you have everything you need to be compliant with Tusla focused inspections and to support childcare providers to comply with the Preschool (Childcare Services) Regulations (2006). The toolkit includes policies, signs and activities to develop and plan your outside play.
