About This Project

The PLEY (Physical Literacy and the Early Years) Project focused on improving physical literacy, physical activity and active outdoor play in Nova Scotia preschoolers through the integration of loose parts. Main findings of this project were summarized in a public-facing report and published in research-grade journals, were shared at the Summer of PLEY event in 2019, and led to several media interviews.

The PLEY team is now exploring how to move outdoor loose parts play into the early elementary school environment.

This project was part of the Lawson Foundation’s Outdoor Play Strategy 1.0.
