Prue Walsh is an early childhood graduate whose work has concentrated on creating effective and stimulating early childhood play environments. This work covers site assessment and the design of buildings and playgrounds in early childhood centres. Prue has also been involved in the development of public policy documents, most significantly the Best Practice Guidelines in Early Childhood Physical Environments.
"Amazingly, the author consulted over 2000 early childhood settings and schools internationally to gain information [...] It's engrossing reading for everyone concerned with Early Years teaching, but it also reflects the needs of others who will work to set up the areas, including architects and planning professionals wanting to gain a greater understanding of play and the vital role it takes in meeting children's needs and development. A practical and valuable book." - Sarah Brew, Parents in Touch "Prue Walsh has consulted on over 2,000 settings and schools globally, working to create effective and stimulating early childhood play environments, including being involved in policy guidance in Australia for early childhood physical environments So you know that you are going to get some food for thought with an author of such experience." - Neil Henty, EYE "Those thinking of improving their early years settings' outdoor provision will find Prue Walsh's insights into planning outside learning environments invaluable." - Teach Early Years
