Out to Play Improve

We recently worked with Early Learning and Childcare Policy to run an improvement programme focussed on time spent undertaking outdoor learning and play in natural environments.

6 teams from local authority, private and voluntary settings in Dumfries & Galloway, East Ayrshire, Glasgow and North Ayrshire took part in the programme which provided workshops to support a shared aim of all children in the settings spending at least half of their time outside by November 2021.

Below is the programme change theory we developed which may help you to think about areas of practice in your setting that could be improved.
