Why aren't children playing outdoors?


A recent report by Play England, Play Wales , Play Scotland and Play Board Northern Ireland, found that more than 50% of adults played out at least seven times a week when growing, conmapred to less than a quarter of children today. The report highlights fears from parents, from traffic to being judged by their neighbours.

CREC recognises the importance of playing and learning outdoors for children development and in conjunction with Birmingham City University offers an MA level course for all practitioners interested in expanding their theoretical knowledge of learning outdoors in early childhood.
