This guide is aimed at those who work in settings where children play. It is ideal for those who are new to playwork.
It looks at:
- ideas that enable those practicing playwork to identify, create or enhance places for playing – for example, affordance and the affective environment
- ideas that have influenced – and continue to influence – direct work in settings where children play
- issues relating to risk and uncertainty in children’s play, including approaches to risk and risk-benefit assessment (RBA).
We worked with Ludicology to produce this series of playwork guides.
