Session Detail

Early Childhood
Maximizing Outdoor Play Time to Master Executive Function and Self Regulation Skills in Young Children 2

Education Service Center, Region 20 (ESC-20) provides assistance to districts in the successful development and implementation of a school readiness integration model of coordinated funding that brings school districts, Head Start programs and child care providers together in a mixed delivery model.  ESC-20 also provides leadership to ensure the effective regional implementation of appropriate instructional strategies in early childhood settings through technical assistance and professional development in the areas of developmentally appropriate practices and curriculum and supports parents with Pre-Kindergarten information and eligibility criteria.

Important Session Information:

Risky play is less about wild adventures and more about intentional explorations. Research shows risky play raises self-esteem, reduces conflict sensitivity, improves muscle strength, encourages innovative thinking, and supports decision-making skills. In this session, participants will gain an understanding of the benefits of risky play, how to support it on their campus, and how to lead a risk-benefit analysis with their students. 

PDSC Member Fee: $0

This session will take place at Cibolo Nature Center and Feature speaker Jill Wood!

Plan to be outdoors for the majority of the day. We will meet rain or shine. There is no bad weather, just bad clothing/planning! (Severe weather conditions will be monitored and decisions will be made in the interest of our participants' safety.)
Registration ends at 12:00 AM on Wednesday, May 31, 2023
