Applying for Grants or Funding for Outdoor Play Environments in Early Years Settings - Friday March 5th 2021

Outdoor play is considered to be a vital part of childhood experience. The outdoor environment and the programs that are planned in them, provide unique opportunities to develop and extend children’s skills and concepts as well as fostering a sense of excitement about learning.

Outdoor play supports social development as well as providing opportunities for the development of self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities. The outdoor program is not an optional add on to a 'main' indoor program, but an essential key component of every service for young children and is a requirement as detailed in the National Quality Standards.

Services are currently requesting support from Play Australia, given the grants available in Victoria, and thus we have created this opportunity which will focus on what you need to know to undertake the application process.

When:

5th March 2021, 9am to 3.30pm

Who should attend?

Staff, parents, and owners and operators of licensed children’s services. Spaces are limited to 20.

Presenters?

Rob Hamilton, Park & Playspace, & Barb Champion, Play Australia will deliver this program.

What does it cost to attend the seminar?
