Early Years

In Britain’s Playgrounds, ‘Bringing in Risk’ to Build Resilience

The New York Times

The Richmond Avenue Primary and Nursery School looked critically around their campus and set about,  as one of them put it, 'bringing in risk'. Out went the plastic playhouses and in came the dicey stuff: stacks of two-by-fours, crates and loose bricks. The schoolyard got a mud pit, a tire swing, log stumps and workbenches with hammers and saws.
