Outdoor Play Glossary of Terms

About This Project

The Outdoor Play Glossary provides a compilation of terminology & concepts integral to outdoor play. The purpose is to be consistent in the use of terms & build a shared understanding of language used in dialogue on outdoor play across Canada. These are working definitions developed by Outdoor Play Canada founding members, the Lawson Foundation Outdoor Play Strategy cohort, the Play Learning and Teaching Outdoors Network (PLaTO-Net) steering committee & broader membership, in addition to national & international advisors with expertise in play-based practice, policy & research.
