Just over 2 ours were playing unsupervised. Our yard is fully fenced and is very open plan inside we have heaps of sliding doors so I can see my kids at all times anyway if I lift my head up!

Thanks all, we r lucky out lounge and dining area look over the yard - 3 sliding doors. (we only have a front yard) but kitchen looks over the back which is just a long path running along the back of the house which is only about 1.5 meters wide. There's nothing there, just empty space really and a bit of fire wood.
All the bedrooms also have sliding doors overlooking the front too.

I did from about 13 months . Totally fenced in and no where for him to go . I can see and hear him . Our pool gate is shut with a bike combination lock so no way he can get in there.

I let my 2.5 year old and 4 year old play outside. The yard is fully fenced. I pop my head out from time to time, but can generally hear them...very noisy little rascals. It's when they're quiet that I know something is up.

What dangerous stuff should I look out for or be careful of? I'm not used to being in a house.
We don't have a pool but some (I think 2) of our neighbours do. They do have fences around and we have a fence round out house but there are a few parts which need replacing.
Besides that we have a garden shed which is locked and potted plants / planter boxes.
We also have a gazebo an a big chicken coop.

My 3 year old goes out and in as he pleases. He has been doing it for ages. If it's secure I don't see the problem, during summer it's different because there are snakes around here.

I think it really depends on your yard, when DD was little we lived on a steep slopey block with trees which meant that I couldn't see most of the yard from the back door, windows and she was a little wanderer. There was also concrete stairs and the side didn't have a gate. So she didn't spend long stints out there alone till she was about 4 and able to understand the boundaries and answer when called.
When we moved to the farm she had free reign from prep. The block was lovely and flat, fenced and the house had lovely wide windows all around so I could always see or hear her. I was worried about snakes though but she's so bloody noisy I'm sure she scared them all off! Lol
If we were on one of those small new blocks you see on a lot of modern houses these days with the patio, glass door set up I would be happy to have a toddler out there.
