Young children have a great need for small, nurturing nooks and crannies, and these are especially important in outdoor spaces. Dens have a special appeal and can generate wonderful ways for children to interact, collaborate and problem solve.

Focusing on dens as a major ingredient of rich high quality provision outdoors, this twilight session will examine why den making is so important for young children’s development. It will identify the roots of children’s needs for refuge, reflect on the learning that comes from den building and explore places and materials for inspiring effective den construction and play.


  • An understanding of the need for and value of den construction and play.
  • Imaginative and practical ideas to support den building outdoors.
