The Importance of Risk in Early Childhood Education
Risk. A scary word when you're thinking about the youngest members of our community. When I think of risk, the images that picture into my head are climbing a tree that is too high (or thin), carrying a giant rock that may fall on a little foot, and running with a long and pokey stick. Do these images cause you to feel uneasy? When we are looking at child development there is a bit of a battle between what is too risky or hazardous, and when is there no risk or challenge.
