She believes that parents will view her as a poor caregiver if the children are not sent home in neat clothes each day. When there is a muddy spot in the outdoor play space, she blocks it off. She tells the children that they are not allowed to jump in puddles or play in the mud because their clothes will get wet and dirty.  Educator B: Roger views outdoor play as a time for children to burn their energy and for him to take a break. He encourages the children to run around as much as they can. He looks on to ensure no one is getting hurt and visits with his co-worker on a bench. Sometimes he takes the opportunity to check his phone for texts or messages during this “downtime.”
