Play and Challenge

'Better a broken bone than a broken spirit'
- Lady Allen of Hurtwood

Play provides varied opportunities which are unpredictable and risky. The risks and challenges provide rich opportunities for learning, problem solving and developing social competence. Children need to take risks in play as it allows them to test their limits for physical, intellectual and emotional development.

Risky play opportunities introduce excitement and challenge for children to test their skills and try new activities. If adults deny children opportunities for worthwhile, positive risks, they also prevent children from developing the decision-making skills necessary to make accurate risk judgements.
