Outdoor play

Outdoor play and experiential learning offers fantastic opportunities and rewards for children and young people. It provides numerous benefits through fun, enjoyment, motivation and personal development. There is no substitute for using our natural senses by smelling, touching and listening to the natural world and wildlife around us.

There is recent research supporting and identifying links between standards of physical health and understanding how to connect and experience the natural environment. There is growing international evidence that natural environments are beneficial for psychological and emotional health. Children who have lots of opportunities for physical play are more likely to stay active and fit in the future.

More detail on daily activities and outdoor play are provided in the Baby Room, Middle Room and Big Room schedules.
