Nature Play

In addition to the compliance of safety and operational procedures and standards as outlined in the manual above, Sarah and Jess have a duty of care with specific regard to safety on outings and outdoor adventures.

Risk Benefit Assessments

Both facilitators complete Risk/Benefit Assessments for all activities, for parents to review and sign acknowledging the potential risks and hazards associated with our everyday play. Risk assessments are reviewed annually and as needed..

Additional safety on outings:

  • High visibility safety vests are worn on our adventures
  • Each child has been equipped with their own 'Adventure Backpacks' that are comfortable, child sized with sternum straps. They carry snacks, water, and additional supplies
  • Each adult carries their own pack with portable emergency records for all children, cell,  well stocked First Aid kit, additional weather appropriate clothing for children, snack, water, whistle, goose call the children return to and additional supplies
  • Crossing buddies as we cross the street, with an educator leading the group and an educator following behind the group
  • We discuss our team principles 1. Respect for each other 2. Respect for ourselves 3. Respect for nature, and our expectations before we leave the yard
