It is important to allow children to take risks and challenge
It is important to allow children to take risks and challenge. Any activity a child does involves some risk, we must consider the age, needs and ability of each individual needs. If an activity is well planned and organised the chance of an accident or injury should be minimal. Allowing children to take risks will build a child’s self esteem and confidence. This will learn children about safety and how to assess risk, they will also gain responsibility. As I work with young children and responsible for play provision we need to take a balanced approach to risk management, we need to take into account the benefits the provision offers as well as the risks it involves.
