There is significant and growing interest in how children and young people
access the outdoors to play, learn, develop and have fun.
The Care Inspectorate have produced this comprehensive guide for people who provide services, people who commission them, and parents of children who attend them. Inspections help to identify effective ways of using outdoor play in every part of Scotland and in every type of care service. Where inspectors have identified
particularly effective or innovative practice in outdoor play and learning, they asked some care
services to describe what they were doing and why they were doing it. Their experiences, in their own words, are presented here. The CI believe this is an effective way of sharing good practice and can help to improve the overall quality of early learning and childcare across Scotland.
